Submit your abstract at the following web address:
Submissions are accepted from June 22 to Sept.30, 2015

Session Chair: Maryann Diedwardo (Lehigh University)

Women’s and Gender Studies / Creative Writing, Editing and Publishing:  We study processes of creating voices of the past to analyze and to juxtapose.

The session invites papers implementing a study of language to focus on metaphorical grammatical constructions, unique and specific with form and function. We interpret works to capture the essence of style as well as rhetorical function of basic structure of grammar, diction and syntax, in a literary work as message and meaning. We discuss useful pedagogical as well as theoretical processes of the literary scholar about the power of writing for cultural change. Sketches, or persona monologues, fiction as well as non-fiction are welcome.

    You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally would want
    to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic
    which has been written about for years. Great stuff, just wonderful!


    1. My book which is based on my Writing for this panel will be coming out in 6 months!! It appeals to those who have experienced abuse and who wish to heal through writing. The Nature of Gender Study and Feminist Practices in Pedagogy about American Women Writers also includes the nature of educational community viewed through feminist theory to reveal curtains surrounding stereotypes, gender status and power in our postcolonial era.
