2020 Mini-Conference

4th Annual Creative Writing Studies Conference

“Innovative Pedagogies in Creative Writing”

March 4, 2020

San Antonio, TX

After three successful conferences in North Carolina, we are moving the conference location, first to Texas to coincide with AWP ’20, then to Ohio. It has always been our intention to hold the conference in different areas throughout the country to help provide access to more of our members throughout the country, and we are thrilled to begin this transition with our fourth conference event.  

San Antonio Mini-Conference

Register for the conference before March 1 here, and check out the full program.

The 2020 Creative Writing Studies Mini-Conference (CWSC) will take place on March 4, 2020 in San Antonio at Our Lady of the Lake University from 9:00 am – 5:30 pm. This symposium-style conference offers us a special opportunity to reach a wider audience of those already attending AWP and facilitate dynamic conversations about the relationship between art and research, practice and theory, Creative Writing and Creative Writing Studies. 

We are hopeful that this event will prove convenient for our members in multiple ways. If you are already planning to attend the AWP Conference in San Antonio, consider coming early and attending both. We also hope this arrangement helps people with different funding strategies.

The symposium will take the place of our traditional fall ‘19 meeting as the 4th annual conference. In the fall of 2020, we will continue to our traditional October conference schedule. 

5th Annual Creative Writing Studies Conference

The 5th annual Creative Writing Studies Conference will return to our usual multi-day event structure (with a conference fee and some meals provided) and will be held Friday, October 9 through Sunday, October 11, 2020 (Friday afternoon through Sunday midday) at Ohio Northern University in Ada, Ohio.
