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.
