i'm just a literary tease, my reputation's on its knees.

Undergrad Conference Needs YOU

December 08, 2006

In today's mail, I got a flyer about the upcoming National Undergraduate Literature Conference. The conference is March 29 - 31, 2007 in Ogden, Utah. This is the only conference that requests submissions from undergraduates only, and accepts submissions in literature research and creative essays, fiction, & poetry.

I was accepted for the conference last year, and thanks to help from a lot of people on campus (Dr. J especially, thank you!), I was able to attend. I even wrote an article about the experience for the Setonian. (Which I would link to but the search feature isn't working for me.)

If you have even the slightly inclination to submit to this conference, you should! It was an amazing experience, Utah is a wonderfully weird place, and when I went, I was able to stay on campus for $9 a night. Awesome! You might think that you can't afford to go, but I say you can't afford not to try. :c) *cheesin' it up*.

In fact, if anyone out in the blogosphere is interested in applying (and submissions are due January 26th), I'd like to offer my help as a reader of your submission, if you need it. Plus, I can tell you all of the Ogden hotspots, where -not- to eat on campus, the best places for free coffee, and where -not- to go in SLC (stay away from anyone with smooth, fresh skin and giant cow eyes.) It'll be great. Really.

I'm pretty sure that all academic conferences are in March--I'm going to CCCC in NYC in March, and probably going to the writing center one, too... and that's in March. My professors would probably hate me if I tried to get to go to a third conference in one month. Not mentioning the backed up work I'd have to do.

I hate making excuses for myself not to go, but I just don't think that it's feasible for me this year. Sad face... I've written some killer stuff lately, too (in my humble opinion). ;)
