Attention all Tulane creative writing students:
This year’s AWP (Associated Writers/Writing Programs) conference will take place in Denver from April 7–10, 2010. The conference is one of the biggest and liveliest literary gatherings in North America, featuring 300+ presentations, readings, lectures, panel discussions, and forums, plus hundreds of signings and receptions.
Each year, the Creative Writing Fund sends up to FOUR creative writing students to the AWP conference, accompanied by faculty members. The CWF covers airfare, shared hotel accommodation, and registration fees, as well as a per diem for food.
On their return to Tulane, students are expected to write a detailed report on the events they attend and on the conference experience overall.
Anyone enrolled in a 400-level Creative Writing class at Tulane in Fall 09 or Spring 10.
Write a letter to Professor Rothenberg, Chair of the Department of English, describing why you would like to attend this conference.
Monday, January 25 by 5 PM. Successful applicants will be notified during the first week of February.
Deliver your letter by hand to the Department of English office in Norman Mayer. For further information on AWP, please visit http://www.awpwriter.org/
