CCTE/TCEA Colleagues:

Please come join us in Cowtown (that’s Fort Worth), March 1-3, 2012, for the joint annual meeting of the Conference of College Teachers of English and the Texas College English Association, attend and participate in inspiring and informative scholarly and creative sessions by our finest college faculty, or watch people from New York try to ride mechanical bulls at Billy Bob’s, or ask a chef to surprise you at Piranha Killer Sushi.  Listen to a symphony at Bass Hall (the opera house) or visit our museum district for some of the finest classical and contemporary art in the world.  We have one of the safest and friendliest downtowns in the country.

The conference hotel is the Sheraton Fort Worth Hotel and Spa, located only a few blocks from the very center of Downtown, with complimentary shuttles running to Sundance Square.  The Sheraton is giving us special conference rates (available to January 31), available when you make reservations at CCTE/TCEA 2012 (

The hotel is immediately across the street from the Texas Wesleyan University School of Law, where our sessions, meetings, and conference events will be located.  The Law School will also have free parking available in their secure lots.  At the registration and check-in tables when you arrive, your conference materials will include a detailed final conference schedule and a compilation of downtown and area restaurants and entertainment suggestions, several with special discounts for CCTE/TCEA attendees.

Again, come join the Conference of College Teachers of English and the Texas College English Association for what I know will be a productive and stimulating conference. You may download the Conference Registration form here.

We look forward to making your experience memorable.  And please let me know what we might do to make your stay more worthwhile.


Jeffrey DeLotto, Chair
