Just in time for WPA 2005 in Anchorage! WPA Members can now post messages to a personal blog space at the Digital WPA site. You can use this space to "blog a conference" or just about anything else. Readers will be able to read and respond to your blog content. You can also include rich HTML content (if you choose) or just type away and let Drupal do some of the formatting work for you.

Each year, the WPA sponsors panel sessions at the MLA convention as part of our Allied Organization status with the MLA. Below is the open call for papers this year's committee has put together. Please note that we're under a strict deadline for submitting this panel. In order to meet the MLA's deadline, we must have proposals in hand by March 25 to give the committee enough time to review submissions.
