A Note on Creative Endeavors:
Projects involving creative work such as writing prose or poetry will be considered for acceptance if a significant component of the project involves supporting research. Abstracts for both posters and oral presentations should document the research process, provide context for the creative work, and indicate the type of creative format that will be presented. The conference presentation should do likewise, including a significant component on the research process and context of the work in addition to all or a sampling of the creative work itself.
