Poetry Studies and Creative Poetry

Primary tabs

Accepts undergraduate submissions

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. We welcome submissions from undergraduates, retirees, and everyone in between.

 

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: Panelists may present papers on poets or poetry. Subject matter is open. Discussions of poetry as popular culture or as it intersects with other aspects of popular culture are especially welcome. Panelists will have 15 minutes each, and the session will end with a brief question and answer time.

 

Submission requirements: Please include 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. You may 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.] Do not email your proposal; only proposals submitted to the online system will be considered.

 

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

 

Please send all inquiries to:
