CFP: Conference on Community Writing

Deadline: February 2

January 12, 2017 9:31 AM

Our inaugural conference, which we hosted here in Boulder in October 2015, had over 350 attendees from 152 colleges and universities and 48 community organizations, representing 42 states and three countries!  It was such an inspiring event!  I hope that you will join us for the second conference. 

We're lining up a great group of speakers, including Elaine Richardson, Ellen Cushman, and Gerald Richards (Executive Director of 826 National) as our keynotes, and Steve Parks, Eli Goldblatt, Paul Feigenbaum , Paula Mathieu, David Jolliffe, and others signing on to speak or run workshops.   

The conference website features the CFP, and it  gives more details on conference overview and keynotes: www.communitywriting.org.  Proposals should be 200-500 words.  A cover page should include the proposal type, presenter's name, professional title and affiliation, and contact information, as well as the paper or session title.

I hope that you will propose.  Would you also help us please to circulate the CFP to faculty, friends, community partners, and graduate students who might be interested?  Many thanks, and I hope to see you next October in Boulder!
