The Popular Culture Association and American Culture Association will hold their annual conference March 27-30 2013 in Washington, D.C.
Last year the conference was held in Boston, and I was fortunate enough to have a paper accepted. There are several opportunities for partial funding, and this conference is a great way to promote yourself as a writer, academic, or just to show off the research you’ve done on feminist subversion and heteronormativity in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Pretty much anything dealing with an aspect of literature, popular culture, and/or American culture is fair game. It’s a whole lot of fun, and a great opportunity to present a paper.
The Missouri Review is also looking for submissions for its 22nd Annual Editor’s Prize. With substantial prizes for fiction, poetry, and essays, this is definitely a contest worth entering.
For local writers, the Danbury Library is organizing a literary reading to be held on Sunday, October 21st.
