2 Day Creative Writing Conference
The Mitchell Library, Glasgow
Friday 9th and Saturday 10th March 2012
Postgraduates and scholars with an interest in Creative Writing along with professional writers are invited to submit critical or practice based presentations to the second annual Write Now Conference.
Three person panels are also welcome.
Presentations may be structured as follows:
- A critical paper focused on a particular genre / author or style of writing
- A reading balanced by a critical element
- A paper on an aspect of Creative Writing pedagogy
Creative writing is as diverse and varied as those who practice it, so there are no topics or themes to be adhered to. We are as eager to hear from new voices as established names in the field.
All we ask is that you are passionate about your writing / research and you can transmit that enthusiasm.
Write Now is an open forum which aims to allow writers and scholars to share their research and creative output fostering a community of writers and researchers interested in the many facets of creative writing.
This year the conference will be held as part of Glasgow’s Book Festival - Aye Write! This will bring writers, academics and readers closer than ever and demonstrates the commitment to foster new talent. We are also inviting readings for a public event during the conference to show off delegates’ performance skills.
Readings may consist of a number of poems or 1-2 short works of fiction / literary journalism and may be on any topic and in any style but must last no longer than 6 minutes
Presentations 20 minutes
Panels 60 minutes plus 30 minutes for questions
Readings 6 minutes (maximum)
