Community Engaged Scholarship

Please submit for Community Writing Conference CFP: Deadline Feb 5

As the local host chair for the fourth Community Writing Conference, I would like to invite you to submit a proposal for our October conference. The deadline is Friday, February 5, and the proposal process is quick.

This national conference brings together community activists and nonprofit leaders along with faculty who work closely with communities through service-learning, community-engaged teaching, and/ or participatory research. We come together to share stories and counterstories that address injustices. We come together to highlight the strengths, beauty, and knowledge of local, national and global communities, and to create a space for coalition building and action.

Although the conference will be held online, we plan to highlight the DC-Maryland-Virginia region, where the local, national and global visibly coalesce. The conference committee welcomes proposals for workshops, interactive presentations, and creative displays and performances from community organizations. We'd like to hear from you!

Please reach out to me Phyllis Ryder at if you have any questions. And please mark the dates for October 21-23. We hope that even if you are not interested in presenting, you will join us then.
