What does it mean to be in a state of exile (literally or metaphorically)? Must longing be part of exile or can exile exist without longing? This virtual panel will consist of creative writers who will read their work (creative non-fiction, fiction, and poetry) and in which they explore what home can mean. Work may either be published or works-in-progress.

If interested, please submit the title of the essay, a brief abstract (approximately 50 words), and a longer proposal (approximately 500 words) by June 15 to PAMLA's Online Proposal Submission Form at:
