Hi all - there is a new journal being published by the AAWP: Meniscus. We're interested in poetry and prose (fiction and nonfiction); and the closing date for submissions is coming up quite soon.
Please check out the flyer attached, and please pass it around; it's not a journal just for university writers, but for all creative writers.
COURTENAY: Travelling With Me For Fifty Years
Also tired of the increased use of casualisation and sessional work that is the only viable option for many of us (eventuallly) post-PhD scholars. We are most at risk in smaller institutions and regional Unis but the Go8s are not immune to slash and burn methods of destabilising the notion of humanities and humanism.
You can fly directly to Hamilton (NZ airfares are reasonably priced) and the Tertiary Writing Network always welcoming and collegiate towards us Aussies. I have experienced many interesting presentations on the differences between PhD programs and HDR in Creative Writing or Professional Writing in New Zealand.
This link is to an interesting read. Science is now tracking the rise and fall of words. We all know that words come and words go. But I never knew how many and that it is happening faster than we imagined. Food for thought for us writers...
Hi, I have been writing a thesis for ten years and now feel I need a change of subject.
I have a new subject, "Repudiating Daniel Wolfe, the absurdities of Outlaw biker brotherhoods."
I could use some help.
As one of the Graduate Scholars at the International Conference on the Book in Toronto last October, I was approached to pullb together a monograph for publication based upon several keynotes delivered since 2007.
In 2012 I am hoping that an online journal (refereed international) will allow a special issue written by, edited by and referreed by PhD scholars. I have requested that if there was enough interest, it could be dedicated to Creative Industries scholars from Australia.
The Research Workforce Training Strategy workshop for so called "less research intensive Universities" today was fantastic. So perfectly focused and targetted. Many HASS organisations could learn from the program the immediate areas of "evidence-based" research and data requirements to strategically position disciplines, faculties and even Institutions in the current period of policy change and flux.
