Australian Association of Writing Programs Conference 2016

28–30 November 2016, University of Canberra

The 21st annual conference of the AAWP will be a site for the exploration of the processes of making creative works in writing. TS Eliot famously said that mature poets steal, and we steal his idea for the framework for this conference. Where do we find the sources for our ideas, our language, our stories? What are the ethics of making through theft, homage, citation, appropriation? What modes of poiesis are involved?

This conference will showcase creative works and highlight creative modes of writing; it will enable investigations of how we make and say; and it will provide opportunities to explore how creative writers engage with research.
