AWP 2012 in Chicago

I’m looking forward to attending and presenting at this year’s AWP conference in Chicago. If you’ll be there, I’d love to see you. (Send me an email: Chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com.)

Friday, March 2
3:00 P.M.-4:15 P.M

Lake Michigan, Hilton Chicago, 8th Floor

During the past two years, openings in English departments declined more than 40%. Creative writing tenure-track openings declined more than 30%. At the same time, the demand for writing opportunities is widening, encompassing community-based, travel, and virtual writing communities. Panelists will discuss writing lives outside academia, including entrepreneurial ventures in online teaching and mentoring, editing and coaching services, workshops and retreats, and community engagement projects.

A big thank you to Alison Hicks for spearheading our great AWP conference proposal. If you’re free on Friday afternoon, I hope you’ll join us.
