Spring English Conference Call for Submissions


We are excited to announce DePaul’s 9th Annual Spring English Conference, to be held on Friday, April 27, 2018. We are now accepting submissions of both creative and academic writing and we encourage you to submit your work.

The conference will be held in Arts & Letters Hall, and will include several unique panels of student presentations, a dynamic keynote speaker, a reception, and refreshments. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase what you’ve been working on and support your peers (plus, it looks great on a resume).

The submission deadline is March 30th. Please review the submission guidelines before sending your submissions. If you have any questions, email us at englishconference.dpu@gmail.com.

We look forward to reading your work!

ENG Fun: First Annual Campus Gnome Hunt


DePaul’s Student Orgs’ Inaugural Gnome Hunt 2018 will take place February 5-9.  Student Organizations and DePaul offices have adopted gnomes they’ve decorated and named.  These gnomes are hidden around the Lincoln Park and Loop campuses during the week of the Gnome Hunt.  Students who find a gnome can bring it to the Office of Student Involvement to receive DePaul swag and a Chartwells gift card.

Swing by the English offices in Arts and Letters Hall on Wednesday this week to see if you can find the English Department’s gnome, Gnomeo (…Gnome-eo, Gnome-eo.  Wherefore art, thou, Gnome-eo?).

And, keep your eyes peeled to our social media sites for hints about Gnomeo’s whereabouts…

Happy Hunting!
