The International Association of Literary Journalism Studies (IALJS) is coming to the UK next spring. The fifth annual conference will be held at Roehampton University, May 20 to 22, 2010, hosted by Roehampton's Centre for Research in Creative and Professional Writing, ReWrite.

Literary journalism is defined as "journalism as literature" rather than "journalism about literature". The association warmly welcomes a wide range of topics and disciplinary frameworks, which include explorations of writing practice as well as contextual research.
