Pump Up Your C.V.

Those of you on (or aspiring to be on) the tenure track know how important conference proceedings, scholarly book chapters, and refereed papers can be. One very good place to look for announcements of the conferences, collections, and journal issues that can make a difference in your career is the Call for Papers (CFP) list hosted by the University of Pennsylvania.

Here is a selection of current announcements that might interest practicing writers-who-teach (or hope to teach):

Anthologies: A Conference
Creative Nonfiction: Voices
Andre Dubus/Andre Dubus III: A Symposium
Poetry Studies and Creative Poetry at 2010 PCA/ACA National Conference

Trust me–there’s plenty more where those announcements came from!
