Creative Writing Education Today

 A national nomadic symposium


Following the successful launch of the nomadic symposium at the University of South Florida (with host Dr. Dianne Donnelly) on October 5, and the second fabulous iteration at Illinois Wesleyan University on February 1 2019 (with hosts Dr. Mike Theune and Dr. Brandi Reissenweber) “Creative Writing Education Today”, next appears at:

Jacksonville State University

Jacksonville, Alabama

Friday, May 24 2019

Thanks to the hosts at Jacksonville State!

You are invited to propose a short paper (15 minutes) and to engage in discussions in this unique nomadic symposium. Papers can explore any topic in such areas of interest as:

 - New ideas in Creative Writing Teaching and Learning

- Assessment

- National and global developments in Creative Writing Research

- Co- Curricular Opportunities

- The Future for Creative Writing / Creative Writing Studies

 Sessions in each national location will be introduced and participants have the option of submitting work to New Writing: the International Journal for the Practice and Theory of Creative Writing (Taylor and Francis) and/or the New Writing Viewpoints book series. All participants will also be invited to participate in a national survey of creative writing education today.

 Send proposals (150 words) to:

 Proposal Deadline: Friday April 12 2019

Attendees who do not wish to present are also very welcome and can register by sending an email to

The nomadic symposium is free, but places in each location are limited. Early submission/registration at your local symposium is thus highly recommended.
