Description
The AFS Folklore and Creative Writing Section, created in March 2005, intends to (1) gather folklorists with an interest in creative writing; (2) hold regular panels and events, such as readings and section-sponsored speakers, at the AFS annual meeting; (3) provide support for folklorists who write, teach, or organize workshops in poetry, drama, fiction writing, creative non-fiction writing, and more; (4) provide educational opportunities for folklorists who want to improve their creative writing skills; (5) publicize and promote the creative performance folklorists are doing, such as the theater piece that immigrant women are creating with the sponsorship of the Institute for Cultural Partnerships; (6) create additional venues for the publication and performance of creative writing by folklorists; (7) establish dialogues between AFS and creative writing associations, such as the Association of Writers and Writing Programs, by sponsoring panels at their conferences; and (8) work with the Storytelling Section of AFS on programs of mutual interest.

The section holds an annual meeting during the annual AFS conference, maintains a listserv among section members, and maintains the Folklore & Creative Writing Section description on the AFS web page.
