The 2013 PCA/ACA Poetry Studies & Creative Poetry Area chair is seeking two kinds of panelists: those reading original poetry and those delivering short papers on some aspect of American poetry.
Creative Panels: Panelists will have 15-20 minutes to read their own work. Time will be reserved after the panelists’ readings for questions from the audience. Those interested in participating should send five sample poems with a brief letter to the listed physical address or email address listed below. Please include ALL of your contact information as well as your university affiliation with your submission.
Poetry Studies Panels: This area concerns papers on American poets or poetry. Subject matter is open, though we are especially interested in discussions of poetry as it relates to popular culture. Panelists will be given 15-20 minutes, and each session will end with a brief question and answer period. Those interested in participating should submit a letter of interest and a 250-word abstract to the PCA Database. Please include ALL of your contact information as well as your university affiliation with your submission.
