A Literary Conference for Undergraduates


Professor Molly Hiro of the University of Portland writes to tell us about a literary conference for undergraduates:

“Next March, we at the University of Portland will be holding our seventh-annual conference for undergraduates: the Northwest Undergraduate Conference on Literature (NUCL).  We are asking for your help in recruiting students to submit their work for consideration for this year’s conference.

We have attached (as well as pasted below) a letter that gives details about NUCL and explains why it’s a good event to promote to students.  Next week, we will be mailing out conference brochures and bookmarks to your department, which we hope you’ll share with your students.

We want to alert you in particular to the fact that because this year’s NUCL is a few weeks earlier than in past years (March 20, 2010), our deadline for submissions is also earlier.  Therefore, we’ve established a submission period: from December 1, 2009 to January 15, 2010.  Please encourage your students to submit early, ideally before leaving for winter break!

Meanwhile, please consult our website (http://www.college.up.edu/english/nucl ) or contact us at nucl@up.edu for more information.

Many thanks,

Cara Hersh and Molly Hiro, Co-Chairs of NUCL 2010″

Thanks to Professor Hiro for sending along this information.
