MSU Undergraduate Literature Conference

April 21-22, 2017

Have you written a literature paper that you would like to share with your peers?

We invite you to apply to the MSU Undergraduate Literature Conference. Students who are selected will read their papers out loud and receive feedback from their peers, as well as English Department graduate students and faculty.

Why should you apply?

Delivering a conference paper will help you develop as a writer, researcher, and public speaker. It is also excellent preparation for professional careers or graduate school. 

Who can apply?

The conference is open to undergraduates who have written papers that interpret literary texts: novels, stories, poems, or plays from any historical period. We also welcome submissions from students who have written papers that interpret non-literary texts, including film, television, and video games. You do not need to be an English major to submit!

How can you apply?

To apply, please fill out and email the submission form to Dr. Lanya Lamouria ( by midnight on Friday, March 10. Please type “ULC Submission” in the subject line of the email.
