The 33rd Annual Conference of the Sport Literature Association will be held Wednesday June 22 to Saturday June 25 at the University of New Brunswick. The Program Committee of the Sport Literature Association invites graduate students to submit completed scholarly essays that "should address treatments of sport in texts or textual media (print, film, performance, digital or other media." We invite essays on sport literature (fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama, or film).

Graduate students are eligible to have their essays published in Aethlon: The Journal of Sport Literature, an international, peer-reviewed journal that "celebrates the intersection of literature with the world of play, games, and sport"; receive a small cash stipend; receive a year's membership in the Association, including two issues of the journal; and an invitation to present the paper at the conference. Small travel stipends may be available. All submitted essays will be considered for presentation at the conference and for possible publication in Aethlon.

Interested students should send completed essays by March 15, 2016. The essays should be sent electronically to:
