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 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 presentation title and 3 sample poems.

Poetry Studies: This area includes papers on 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.

Do not email your proposal. Only proposals submitted to the online system will be considered:

https://pcaaca.org/help/conference/submitting-proposals-conference.

 

Online submission instructions: Register or log in. Include your name, affiliation, and a short bio on your account as you would like them to appear in the program. Select the subject area Poetry Studies & Creative Poetry. Enter your proposal’s title (something that will grab attention in the program) and an abstract of no more than 250 words. Please proofread closely as this text will become part of the program if your proposal is selected. For creative proposals only, also include an attachment of 3 sample poems in 1 document. 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.]

 

To propose a complete panel, each panelist must submit individually in the online system, and the panel chair should email Dr. Manning with the panel title and a list of participants’ names.
