CFP: North American Review Creative Writing and Literature Conference (1.16.15)

I’m writing today to bring to your attention the North American Review Bicentennial Creative Writing and Literature Conference to be held next summer (June 11-13, 2015) on the campus of the University of Northern Iowa. I am attaching a CFP and a list of notable contributors to the magazine. I thought the Society of American Women Writers would be interested in knowing about the conference. 

The current NAR editors would be quite eager to include papers, panels, and/or roundtables focused on the American Women Writers in the context of the North American Review. We’re also amenable, of course, to papers that are not solely NAR-centric but still explore Women Writers both critically and creatively.

 I would be grateful if you could spread the word about the conference to your fellow society members—and anyone else in your professional circle who might be interested in attending or presenting at our conference. In the meantime, please feel free to contact conference director Jeremy Schraffenberger at if you have any questions.
