Call for Papers, Panels, and PresentationsPage 23 Virtual LitConOctober 15-17 2020


500-word abstracts for papers, panels, creative presentations, roundtables, or any other appropriate event expanding and/or expounding on comics and pop culture are being accepted for an online scholarly conference.


Since its inception nine years ago, Denver Pop Culture Con’s Page 23 LitCon features presenters from numerous areas of focus, including comics and graphic novels, gaming, television, film, anime, wrestling, toy studies, and so much more. We love giving a platform to people who live in any pop culture realm (or at the intersections of multiple!).  


This year, though Denver Pop Culture Con was canceled due to coronavirus, Page 23 is taking its programming online! We plan to offer several options and platforms for sharing your work. To submit your proposal, please follow the link to the attached Google Form by August 17th.

We are particularly interested in: 

  • Panels centering on pop culture pedagogy, aimed at current teachers of all levels 

  • Papers addressing diversity of race, class, gender, neurology, sexuality, and ability in pop culture, and how those issues might be impacted by our current sociopolitical climate

  • Proposals for pop culture-related play readings, creative writing workshops, slam poetry events, fiction readings, epic rap battles, and other fare beyond the traditional literary conference milieu
