The Committee does not make travel or lodging arrangements. We do encourage participants to stay at the Mabel Luhan House, 505-751-9686. To our regret, we do not have funds to offer honorariums to those submitting papers. But we know this will be a unique educational opportunity and an entertaining experience. We look forward to your involvement as an admirer of Frank Waters’ literary work, and hope that you will share this Call For Papers with other potential participants as well as encourage others simply to attend. Periodically, we will be sending out further details – including registration forms – connected with our Celebration. We hope to see you ther
