2018 Convention

Our judges’ decisions about the submissions for the Sigma Tau Delta 2018 International Convention have been made. You should have received an email from englishconvention@niu.edu yesterday (if you submitted and didn’t receive an email, you might check the spam folder in your email). Thank you to all of those who submitted; and to those who have been invited to present, let me offer our congratulations!

If you received such an invitation, your first task should be to complete the participant confirmation form. You will find a link to this form and the list of accepted papers (listed by school) on the Presentation Overview page.

For those who were not accepted this time around, you received my personal invitation to sign up to chair a session—an important job at convention, and one that ensures your name appears in the program as a participant. Again, follow the instructions in that email in order to complete the Session Chair Volunteer Form.

Faculty and alumni, please consider serving as a moderator. Information about this important role and the sign-up form is available on the moderator page of the website.

Complete information about how to take full advantage of the convention appears at englishconvention.org.  There you will learn more about

On behalf of the 93 judges who evaluated over 800 submissions, I applaud the hard work and tremendous potential we saw this year. Should you have questions, contact us via email at englishconvention@niu.edu. I encourage you to join us at the 2018 Convention in Cincinnati!
