CALL FOR PAPERS: Annual Writers’ Festival

University of Mary Hardin-Baylor
Windhover Writers’ Festival
Contact: Dr. Jessica Hooten Wilson,

We invite poets and fiction writers to submit a selection of their work to be considered to be presented at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor’s Annual Writer’s Festival. Selections should not exceed fifteen minutes of reading, so no more than ten typed, double-spaced pages. Please include with your selection a short biography of the author, including where you have previously published your work or awards or honors you have received for your writing.

This year the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor’s Writer’s Festival will include panels on the relationship between faith and fiction or faith and poetry. We invite artists, scholars, teachers, or students of creative writing to submit 300-500 word abstracts for paper presentations on the role of faith in the artist’s life or work, critiques of contemporary faith-inspired artists, or any other relevant topic.

Due Date: Please send your proposals by November 15, 2012. Notification will be sent by December 1, 2012.

Speaking of Windhover, let us recall John Liem’s review of House of Words that graces the current issue — featured at the 2012 conference. It goes without saying that the Kollektiv must be represented at the 2013 conference, nicht wahr?

    Wait a second, I think I’ve got an entry around here somewhere that might just fit the bill. It’s got pictures and everything…

  2. Oh, critiques of contemporary faith-based artists? I can do that. (rummages through files)

  3. Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says

    Party at Jessica’s!

    Someone text Joel and Ethan.

  4. I’m making arrangements for DT to be there. Having just met Dorian last week, I’d love to finally meet everyone else. Geresane, Cowboy Edition anyone?
