Call for Papers and Panels

Guidelines for Paper Submissions

All currently-enrolled members of Sigma Tau Delta and Sigma Kappa Delta, and Alumni Epsilon chapter members, are invited to submit critical essays, creative nonfiction, original poetry, fiction, drama/ screenplays, panel proposals and/or works focusing on the common reader, Mike Perry’s  Population 485: Getting to Know Your Neighbors One Siren at a Time, to be considered for inclusion on the annual convention program. Essays on any topic of interest in the discipline are welcome; essays on the works of our featured speakers are especially encouraged.

Paper submissions must conform to the following guidelines:

N.B.: Submissions not meeting these stated requirements will not be considered.

Guidelines for Panel Proposals

We encourage students, faculty sponsors, and Alumni Epsilon chapter members to propose panels on topics of general interest to both the discipline and the society. Panel presentations will be 75 minutes in length and might consider such topics as chapter activities, service projects, service learning, graduate school and/or career options, pedagogical issues surrounding canon formation or assessment, etc.; that is, topics that can best be explored in interactive, round-table discussions. Panels are not meant to be sets of correlated essays. For assistance in developing panel proposals, please contact Convention Chair, Gloria J. Hochstein.
