2020 Calvert and Woodall Awards
Call for Papers

The Association of College English Teachers of Alabama (ACETA) calls for papers for

The 2020 William J. Calvert Award
for a paper on any scholarly or theoretical topic in English studies


 The 2020 James Woodall Award
for a paper on any pedagogical topic in English studies

Deadline (Postmark or Email): December 13, 2019

College English teachers and graduate students may submit papers for one or both of the competitions.  The writer’s name, along with the title of the essay and the writer’s institutional affiliation, should appear on a cover sheet but not on the paper itself.  Papers may not have been previously read or published.

Each award winner will receive $150 from ACETA.  Condensed versions of the winning papers will be presented at the annual meeting of ACETA held at the University of North Alabama in Florence, Alabama in the spring of 2020.

A panel appointed by the ACETA president will judge the papers.
