AAWP 2020 : Rising Tides
Griffith University, Gold Coast Campus, 16 - 18 November 2020
At this 25th anniversary AAWP conference we ask, what does 20/20 vision bring us as we face the rising tides of the future? What must writers write for now? Where should research be directed? How might publishing adapt? How can teaching prepare the writers of the future? What do the coming changes mean for traditional genres and emergent technologies? Will writing itself sink or swim?
It is now a quarter of a century since the first AAWP conference. A milestone in the history of creative writing in Australia. The 2020 conference will be held at the Gold Coast campus of Griffith University, a place known as much for its real estate expansionism, as for its tidal settings. Thankfully, the Gold Coast campus of Griffith University is well above sea level.
NOTE: Although travel plans are interrupted due to Covid-19 concerns, we expect that the conference will go ahead in November as planned and look forward to receiving your Abstract proposals by the due date.
