Call for Conference Papers

Speaking of travel writing classes, I also found a call for conference papers on Teaching Creative Non-Fiction at the Northeast Modern Language Association convention in Boston, March 31 through April 2, 2005.

“This panel will offer some practical suggestions for teaching creative non-fiction: including memoir and autobiography, personal and reflective essays, biography, travel writing, nature writing, “literary journalism,” etc. Not only will this panel provide some practical suggestions for teaching creative non-fiction, but it will also help to define the genre and show its importance….”




I know of at least three or four travel writing teachers that follow Written Road, and I think they could speak to a larger audience about Creative Non-Fiction.

Here are the details and deadlines. Go for it! I hope they fly you out and give you a decent pay. It wasn’t mentioned on the posting, but I can’t imagine that they wouldn’t.
