For the first time since its inception sixteen years ago, UP’s Northwest Undergraduate Conference on Literature (NUCL) was organized and hosted by the English Department of Seattle University on March 23, 2019. The submissions of ten UP students were accepted, and eight students were able to attend and present their critical and/or creative work: Tayler Bradley, Claire Breiholz, Sophie Downing, Berkeley Franklin, Caroline Holyoak, Emily Nelson, Claire Noring, andBianca Salazar. Several English faculty members also traveled to Seattle to support students and facilitate travel and lodging arrangements.
Two students won individual recognition for their work. Emily Nelson won the award for Best Critical Paper for “A Woman’s Place: The Revolution Personified in A Grain of Wheat,” and Caroline Holyoak received an honorable mention in the Best Creative Writing Submission category for her poetry collection Live Wire.
