I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.
–Walt Whitman

This year’s theme is In Many Tongues: Constituents of the Barbaric Yawp.

This year’s conference will be centered around the theme In Many Tongues, a conversation bringing together writing and publishing, literary inclusion, translating and translation, dialect and dialog, atypical modes of speech, and the generational, political, ecological, and experimental elements that add to the wider literary conversation.

The conference will include creative readings, craft talks, workshops and panel discussions on writing, reading, teaching, performing, editing and publishing creative works. Highly acclaimed visiting faculty will share their experience and insights, and presenters from Ohio and beyond will speak on a variety of topics.

More information on registration is available here:

Registration costs $45; for graduate students and part-time faculty $10; undergraduate student registration is free. Streamlined registration process for a whole class of undergraduate or high school students.
