This year’s conference theme is “Reinvigorating the Public Sphere.”  We seek proposals that address, but are not limited to:

  • Using literature to reflect and understand our community, society and public concerns.
  • Moving creative writing as a vehicle from the classroom to the wider campus and community.
  • Responding to effects on classes, college, and communities and economic and political stressors in our students’ lives.
  • Validating marginalized students’ responses to core classes and how best to incorporate students' lives in the writing class.
  • Including academic theory -- feminism, gender studies, socio-economic studies, critical race theory, and more -- in writing instruction.
  • Collaborating with interdepartmental writing assignments, instruction and assessment for student success.

We also encourage Developmental English faculty to participate with experience concerning "co-req," Accelerated Learning Programs, or similar.
