|Writers Conference is set for March 23-27|
The 41st Annual UND Writers Conference "Mind the Gap: Print, New Media, Art" is fast approaching. This year's conference will take place from March 23-27, and it is very much interdisciplinary in nature. This year's participants are involved not only with traditional print literature, but also film, history, computer programming, time-based media, virtual environments, art, and music, among other fields. As faculty prepares for spring semester classes, we hope that they will consider encouraging their students to attend events and incorporating the works of Conference authors/artists into their classrooms.
The 2010 UND Writers Conference will feature Pulitzer Prize winning graphic novelist Art Spiegelman, Affrilachian poet Frank X. Walker, as well as new media authors/artists Nick Montfort, Deena Larsen, Stuart Moulthrop, and Mark Amerika. Video artist Cecelia Condit, whose work will be exhibited at the North Dakota Museum of Art, will also be joining us, as will Saul Williams, spoken word artist and Grand Slam Poetry Champion. Finally, this year's conference will also include a multi-media musical performance by Zeitgeist.
The Conference schedule, biographies of this year's authors/artists, along with links to freely available online works are available at http://www.undwritersconference.org/ . All Conference events are, and always have been, free and open to the public. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Conference co-director Crystal Alberts at firstname.lastname@example.org .
