Students will write a final researched essay of approximately eight to ten pages targeted toward a real-world, published Call for Papers (CFP). A CFP is how people holding a conference advertise their conference. They call for papers, and writers send abstracts describing their paper topics in the hopes that the conference coordinator will accept them into the conference. Once accepted, they present their paper at the conference. For this essay, you will find a conference that fits with your desired topic and write your essay for that CFP advertisement.
