The Angle: Call for Articles

Opening Up: Decolonization, Anti-Racism, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Creative Writing Pedagogy

The Angle is currently accepting submissions for brief articles (750 – 1500 words) that highlight the efforts of creative writing classes to enact meaningful decolonial, anti-racist, and anti-oppressive changes to the workshop model. These articles might focus on the efforts of a faculty member, a group, or a department to critique the power structures at play in the traditional creative writing classroom, to rethink and/or reinvent the classroom, and to open creative writing pedagogy. How is your creative writing workshop dedicated to equitable, diverse, and inclusive writing practices? How have you, singly or with colleagues, taken up the challenge of rethinking and revising the traditional workshop model? In what ways might our field continue this work of unlearning and refusing systems of oppression? How is the creative writing workshop a unique locus for these discussions?

An article by Professor Heather Jessup (Dalhousie University) on diversifying and decolonizing the creative writing classroom was featured in the Spring 2021 issue of The Angle. To read Heather Jessup’s article, please click here.
