Call for papers: 25th Annual ELL Conference

Have you written a paper you’re especially excited about? Whether it’s a research paper or creative writing, be sure to submit it to the University of St. Francis’ 25th annual English Language and Literatures Conference no later than September 15 (that’s this Thursday!).

The ELL Conference is an opportunity for students across the country to present papers, field questions, and further hone their argumentative thinking skills in a challenging but supportive environment. A special bonus for participating students is that a conference presentation looks especially good on resumes and graduate school applications.

Recent grads, current undergrads, and high school students taking Advanced Placement courses are invited to submit completed papers (approx. 2,000-3,000 words or 1,500-2,000 words for AP and introductory students) to ell@stfrancis.edu no later than Sept. 15, 2016, in any of the following categories:

  • English literatures
  • Literatures in translation
  • Comparative literature
  • Critical theory
  • Film
  • Creative writing
  • Teaching English
  • Special sessions for introductory and AP English students
