CFP: Contemporary Creative Writing and the Romantic Legacy

Abstract proposals are sought for a Special Issue of TEXT Journal which will explore contemporary creative writing in relation to Romanticism’s legacy, its influences, inspirations, tyrannies and resistances. In the context of creative writing’s establishment as an academic discipline, the rise of environmental Humanities and opportunities offered by the digital turn as a platform for new writing, this collection offers an opportunity from which to consider Romanticism’s legacies and possibilities for new, post-Romanticist discourses to emerge.  Papers should clearly relate to contemporary creative writing.

Deadline: 15 August, 2016
