Peripheral Visions – 23rd Annual AAWP conference CFP

Every creative expression shares a vision. Whether writers are looking from, looking towards, looking askance, looking away, or looking over, writing beckons us to the periphery and asks, ‘Where to now?’.

The location of the 2018 annual conference of the AAWP in the western reaches of the continent has inspired our theme. And we are delighted to announce that Kim Scott, award-winning novelist and Professor of Writing, will be our keynote speaker.

We invite presentations — from pedagogy, research, and practice in creative or professional writing, editing and publishing — that explore or excavate these different ways of writing beyond and outside the obvious, enabling alternative worlds, ideas, or truths to emerge.
