For aspiring poets, fiction and nonfiction writers, if you're looking for something fun to do before summer comes, here is an event made just for you. The University of Houston's distinguished undergraduate literary journal, Glass Mountain will sponsor the 2012 Boldface: A Conference for Emerging Writers.
This year's conference runs from May 21 to May 25 and will take place at the University of Houston's Honors College. It will feature Dr. Corey Marks, Dr. Keya Mitra, and Dr. Lacy M. Johnson as the visiting writers. There will also be literary events all day long, including craft talks, Open Mic readings and workshops led by graduate students at the University of Houston's Creative Writing Program. Past speakers have included J. Kastely, Kevin Prufer, Ange Mlinko and Alexander Parsons.
The conference also offers the Robertson Prize to the most talented writers and you'll have the perk of lunch and breakfast covered.
"The conference itself was started by undergraduates and was originally envisioned as an undergraduate conference," Steven Simeone, managing editor of Glass Mountain, said.
The conference is now open to anyone not enrolled in a graduate creative writing program.
"It is great because It gives people a space to come in and have a writing intensive conference for a week—something usually only available on a graduate level," Simeone said.
For more information, go to the conference website. Don't miss a beat... the deadline to register is May 1.
