Novels, Then and Now

Area chair

Kelly Jean Helm (Washington & Jefferson College, Washington and Jefferson College)

This area includes all novel genres, authors, time periods, cultures, and settings. Consider it a safety net for novels that don’t fit neatly into a specific genre or that cross genres. For example, consider the many sub-genres of Romance with a capital “R”—western, thriller, paranormal, religious, romance (with a small “r”), detective, urban fantasy, etc. From Pearl S. Buck to Lee Child, from Laurie King to Tony Hillerman, from Julia Spencer-Fleming to Emilie Richards—all are welcome.

Submission Process: Submit a 250-word proposal including A/V requests and a brief biography by June 30 to our online submission form at
