Conference Website:

The University of Connecticut’s Freshman English Program will host its Ninth Annual Conference on the Teaching of Writing on Friday, April 4, 2014. Last year’s conference attracted over 120 attendees from more than 20 institutions for a rich program of presentations, roundtables, and panels. Our theme this year is “Sounding the Silence, Countering Quietism” and Dr. Cheryl Glenn, Liberal Arts Research Professor of English and Women’s Studies Director at Pennsylvania State University, author of Unspoken: A Rhetoric of Silence, will deliver our keynote address.

We appreciated your participation in last year’s conference, and we hope you’ll consider submitting a proposal for this year’s conference. We would be grateful if you could also distribute the CFP among your colleagues. We welcome proposals from instructors, tutors, and students (both graduate and undergraduate) that address issues pertinent to writing instruction from all disciplines and programs.

The deadline for proposals is Monday, February 3.
