This Friday, November 16th, from 1-5pm, Sigma Tau Delta will host the 2nd Annual English Writing Conference at the Bernhard Center, rooms 210-213 and the faculty lounge on the 2nd floor. We have an exceptional line-up of student panels planned; I have attached our current schedule of presentations for your convenience. From original fiction, poetry, and playwriting to literary theory and pedagogical studies, these panels will certainly demonstrate the high level of creative and academic work our English students are producing at WMU.

We cordially invite you and your students to attend the English Writing Conference and support the efforts of these remarkable presenters. This conference will allow the university and entire community to see the physical embodiment of the English department. We hope that you will enhance our image and endorse our students' efforts with your presence.

The conference will begin at 1pm with a brief introduction and history of the EWC and ESS in the 2nd floor faculty lounge of the Bernhard Center. Food and water will also be available at that time. Panels will run every hour: 1:10-1:50, 2:00-2:50, 3:00-3:50, 4:00-4:50pm. Schedules for each room will be posted outside of their respective doors; conference programs, Sigma Tau Delta information, and upcoming conference and publication opportunities for students will also be available in the faculty lounge.

Thank you for your continued support of Sigma Tau Delta and the English Writing Conference. If you have any questions about our organization or the EWC, please do not hesitate to contact Jen Dempsey at

We look forward to seeing you on Friday at the English Writing Conference!
