Here is my annual pitch for those of you who are interested in teaching careers to attend some conferences. You need them on your c.v. to show potential employers that you are professionally active. Here’s a good one that would be an excellent chance for you to get a paper or panel accepted and get some conference experience under your belt: http://urigradconference.org/
And, of course, as always, I highly recommend attending AWP, even if you’re not presenting, and even if only to visit the book fair. It’s in Minneapolis this year, in April.
