New Proposal Deadline: June 15, 2009
The 4th Biennial &Now Conference of Innovative Writing & the Literary Arts will be held in
Buffalo, NY from October 15-17, 2009. The &Now Festival explores intersections between
creative and critical praxes, examines innovative and experimental acts of writing, and
advances a serious inquiry into theories of language.
Keynote Speakers: Robert Coover, Nathaniel Mackey, Rikki Ducornet
Critical papers and cross genre work of all kinds: criti-fictional presentations, readings,
performance pieces (digital, sound, and otherwise), and digital and multimedia projects.
Pieces that address linguistic transgressions, the limits of genre, or works that promote
interdisciplinary explorations are particularly encouraged. Proposals can be for individual
readings, critical panels, creative panels, and/or roundtable discussions.
Please send proposals by email in the following format:
*Title of Proposed Reading/Performance/Presentation
*Brief Description (no more than 500 words).
*Brief Bio (a few sentences) of all participants
*Tech needs (if any)
Submit all proposals to: firstname.lastname@example.org
PROPOSAL DEADLINE: June 15, 2009.
Please note: Each session will be approximately 75 minutes. Individual
presentations/readings should therefore be limited to 15-20 minutes so that grouped
sessions that make thematic sense can be arranged.
