The Poetry Studies & Creative Poetry Area invites proposals from two kinds of panelists: those reading original poetry and those delivering short papers on some aspect of American poetry.

Creative Poetry: Panelists will have 15 minutes each to present their own work. There will be time at the end of the session for interaction with the audience. Please submit an abstract that describes your project along with a title, a short bio, and 3 sample poems.

Poetry Studies: This area includes papers on American poets or poetry. Subject matter is open. Discussions of poetry as it relates to popular culture are especially welcome. Panelists will have 15 minutes each, and the session will end with a brief question and answer time. Please submit a title, an abstract, and a short bio.

Do not email your proposal. Only proposals submitted to the online system will be considered: http://pcaaca.org/national-conference/proposing-a-presentation-at-the-conference/

Online submission instructions: Register or log in. Select a subject area. Enter your proposal’s title (something that will grab attention in the program), an abstract of no more than 250 words, a short bio of no more than 50 words, and an attachment of 3 sample poems in 1 document (for creative proposals). Please proofread your name, affiliation, title, and abstract closely as this text will become part of the program if your proposal is selected. Submit only 1 proposal to 1 area. [Exception: Those who submit a proposal of creative work may also submit a paper proposal to this area or to another subject area.]
