Finals week is just around the corner, which means English majors are swamped with (more) essays (than usual). And while this might seem daunting, a reminder: anything that you are working on right now – be it an analysis of plants in Shakespeare or psychological realism in Pamela – has the potential to be submitted to this year’s NUCL conference! This year, your opportunity to submit a favorite paper (or two!) extends until January 11th – almost a full week sooner than previous years. So if you’re waist-deep in essays now and think you might see something special emerging, mark your calendars now – January 11th is your last day to submit to NUCL!
As we mentioned in a previous post, NUCL, the UP English Department’s long-running undergraduate conference on literature, is taking place this year at Seattle University on March 23. Students from all around the country submit analytical papers, as well as poetry collections and nonfiction personal essays, for consideration. Here’s the link to apply.
Best of luck and happy writing!
