To celebrate the legacy of her multi-faceted artistry an Ania Walwicz Symposium will be
held at Deakin Downtown, Collins St, Melbourne, 10th February 2023. ] We are interested
in programming a range of papers that speak to Ania’s work, from papers that engage
the general reader or fictocritical and/or creative presentations, to more traditional
scholarly papers. Creative responses might include other media (film, sound, e-lit etc.).
Symposium presenters will also be invited to submit their creative works and/or critical
papers to be published later in 2023 as part of a special issue of a literary journal (such
as TEXT, to be confirmed at a later date). The special issue will be edited by Marion May
Campbell, Anna Gibbs, and Sneja Gunew.
Please submit to all three: Marion May Campbell (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) Anna
Gibbs (A.Gibbs@westernsydney.edu.au); Sneja Gunew (email@example.com) a THREE-
LINE description of the creative or fictocritical piece NOT exceeding 15 minutes that you
would like to present for the symposium. We are looking for work to engage the general
literary reader, rather than specialist scholarly work. After the Symposium, you will be
invited to develop your piece to a 3000 word-limit for a peer-reviewed Special Issue: Ania
We would like the three-line submissions by Nov 30th 2022.
Decisions will be made by Dec 17th.
