Coming Home: War, Healing, and American Culture
The 2014 Great Plains Writers’ Conference (March 23-25) will focus on the roles of military culture in American literary life, with particular emphasis on the relationship—on a personal and cultural level—between literature and healing. This theme reflects South Dakota’s proportionately large contribution to the armed forces, as well as South Dakota State University’s large body (over seven hundred strong) of Military Science students, reservists, and ROTC candidates.
Together with our typical annual events (the presentation readings for our award series and the launch of our journal Oakwood, we expect to have a great conference. Check in on our blog or follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@GPWritersConf) to stay tuned with all our developments.
