2012 DPU EGSA Annual Spring Conference

EGSA Literary Conference, depaulunderground.wordpress.com

The 3rd Annual English Graduate Student Association was held on April 13, 2012 at DePaul University’s new Arts and Letters Hall on the Lincoln Park campus. Forty-three graduate and undergraduate students presented original works of literary criticism, creative fiction, non-fiction and poetry. From these impressive offerings, six critical papers, four fiction pieces, and selections from two poets were chosen for publication in the proceedings. The proceedings will be posted on The Underground and Ex Libris to begin, and eventually on the English Department’s website.
