DACC Hosts National Literary Conference

First Time for Conference in Illinois

Danville Area Community College’s Liberal Arts division will host the College Student Literary Magazine Conference on Friday, November 4, 2011, in the Bremer Conference Center. This national conference will be attended by students and faculty from across the country.


DACC Professor Ryan Stone, event co-chair, is the featured reader for the event; he will read a selection from his short story collection, Best Road Yet. Professor Stone serves as faculty advisor for the DACC Student Literary publication, Waiting for Rain. This publication has won national recognition at previous CSLMC conferences.


The featured key note speaker for the event will be Glen Retief. Retief is a gifted teacher and writer whose new book, The Jack Bank, is a memoir of growing up white and gay in apartheid South Africa.


The CSLMC (formerly Mid-Atlantic College Student Literary Magazine Conference) was founded at Community College of Philadelphia in 2008 where the inaugural conference took place


The goal of the Conference is to provide a student-centered platform for publications primarily or entirely written by and edited by students. This conference for student magazine editors, writers, artists, and faculty advisors is geared toward student-centered, collaborative presentations by students and faculty. Presentations focus on various aspects of student literary magazines such as:

·         innovative student-faculty collaborations in and beyond the classroom

·         online magazines

·         financing student magazines

·         developing and promoting magazines

·         editorial process

·         alternative expressions (e.g., CDs, podcasts etc.)

·         collaborations involving student magazines and other clubs, departments, organizations

·         graphic design and layout

The conference is held each year at a host school selected by the conference committee. This will be the first year for an Illinois college to host the conference. For more information, please contact Professor Stone at rstone@dacc.edu or 217-554-1537.
