The TCEA, a rapidly growing organization, is the Texas affiliate of the national College English Association. Meeting in conjunction with the Texas-based Conference of College Teachers of English on the first weekend of March each year, TCEA organizes several sessions of scholarly papers and creative writing works by and/or about Texas scholars and writers.
TCEA also hosts a breakfast and morning speaker each year at the conference.
Ms. Michelle Hartman, editor of RedRiverReview.com was our 2015 conference breakfast keynote speaker. Ms. Hartman presented a hilariously sagacious insight into her poetry writing adventures in her talk: “Writing Humor in the State of Texas.”
The 2016 conference will be hosted by University of Texas at San Antonio, March 3-5, 2016, and will be held in the beautiful historic Menger Hotel. Its theme for the 2015 conference will be “Im/migrations and Im/migrants: The Texas Experience” (see Call for Papers). One of the presented papers from the TCEA sessions is selected each year for inclusion in CCTE Studies, published in the fall of each conference year.
