Undergraduate Conference at St. Francis College Now Accepting Papers (deadline 1/1/2015)


Call for Papers

Attention: All undergraduate writers and English majors!
The University of St. Francis is now accepting scholarly papers from undergraduate students for our 24th Annual English Language and Literature Conference. This event is open to all undergraduate students.

We are calling for any paper related to English language, literature, film, critical theory, or creative writing. Please note that we can only accept one paper per applicant. If your paper is accepted, you will present it to fellow students from all around the country.

Please submit complete papers to ell@stfrancis.edu. Papers should be between 6-8 pages long.

The deadline is January 1st, 2015.

The conference will be held on Saturday, March 21st, 2015.

The $25 registration fee includes coffee and refreshments all day long, and a shuttle service to and from area hotels. We regret that we do not have additional funding for transportation and accommodations. The conference lunch with our keynote speaker will be $20. On-line Registration for the conference will open in mid-January on our conference website, which will also contain information about local accommodations. On-line registration will close two weeks before the conference.

The ELL conference is an exciting, fun, and beneficial event not to be missed by anyone interested in literature, culture, theater, and the lively discussion of important ideas. A special bonus is that a conference presentation looks especially good on graduate school applications and resumes!
