Call For Papers

Creative Writing and Innovative Pedagogies (CWIPs) Conference
Call for PApers

The exponential increase in Creative Writing degrees and programs at the undergraduate and graduate level has been well-documented, and much thought and scholarship has been devoted to the impact the Academy has on the writing community and subsequent creative output. However, there has been only a limited amount of public conversation about and research into the pedagogical approaches that have been or might be used in Creative Writing classrooms and programs. How are teachers of Creative Writing tweaking, extending, revolutionizing, or replacing the traditional Workshop model in their classrooms? What are or should be the academic and aesthetic goals of a Creative Writing class or program, and how can these goals be achieved? For this conference we are seeking papers that discuss theories that inform creative writing pedagogy, strategies and practical applications in the Creative Writing classroom, development of curriculum at the program level, and pedagogical innovations beyond the classroom.
Proposals are welcomed and encouraged from all teachers of Creative Writing, including graduate students and those who teach outside of the Academy.
Teaching Fellowships: A limited number of teaching fellowships are available for this conference. The conference registration fee ($40) is waived for fellows, who are invited to work one-on-one with an undergraduate Creative Writing student at UCM in a half-hour conference on Friday afternoon.
To Submit: a one-page proposal for your paper, CV, and indicate in a cover letter (1) whether you are proposing a panel, individual paper, or paper that fits in an existing panel topic, (2) which existing panel topic you are proposing a paper in, and (3) if you wish to be considered for a Teaching Fellowship. Send these materials to:

The deadline for paper/panel proposals is June 1st, 2015.

Date: October 16-17, 2015
Keynote Speakers: Michael Kardos & Catherine Pierce, Directors,
Creative Writing Program, Mississippi State University
