Australian Association of Writing Programs Conference: Griffith University; Gold Coast Campus 16-18 November 2020

Conference Theme:  ‘Rising Tides’

The creation of the Australasian Association of Writing Programs was a milestone in the history of creative writing in Australia, a quarter of a century ago. We'll celebrate that milestone at the 25th anniversary AAWP conference - to be held at Griffith University, 16-18 November 2020 on the theme of 'Rising Tides'.

If you've never been to the AAWP conference before, we encourage you to take the plunge or at least visit the Australian Gold Coast's golden sands!! If you are unable to make it, we hope you'll encourage your colleagues and students to embrace the opportunity.

We invite proposals for academic papers, panels, performances and/or creative presentations from writers, scholars and post-graduate students of creative writing, of up to 15 minutes duration, that explore the conference theme of 'Rising Tides'. We encourage participants from Australasia and around the world, from all backgrounds, including university lecturers, postgraduate candidates and undergraduate students of writing – who are working in all genres, modes and styles, theories and practices of creative writing.

Preliminary information (including links for conference registration and AAWP membership) is provided here:
