Our judges’ decisions about the submissions for the Sigma Tau Delta 2019 International Convention have been made. You should have received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org yesterday (if you didn’t see it, 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 your paper has been accepted, you must 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. We rely on chairs—it’s an important job at convention! Chairs also appear in the program as participants. Again, follow the instructions in that email in order to complete the Session Chair Volunteer Form.
Faculty and alumni, please consider serving as moderators. Information about this important role and the sign-up form is available on the Moderators 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
- tips for securing funding;
- registering by the January 22 early deadline;
- securing a hotel room at the Sigma Tau Delta rate;
- chair volunteer guidelines;
- biographies for our featured speakers; and
- an ever-expanding schedule of anticipated events.
On behalf of the 120 judges who evaluated over 800 submissions, I applaud the hard work and creativity we saw this year. If you have questions, please contact us at email@example.com. I encourage you to join us at the 2019 Convention in St. Louis!
