On Friday, April 22, Bridgewater State University will participate in the 10th Annual Undergraduate Literature Conference at the UMass Boston Campus Center.

The conference will feature a series of panels with students from UMass Boston, Stonehill College, and Bridgewater State University all participating and presenting their work.

Co-President of the English Society BSU, Sarah Bruns, showed her enthusiasm for the yearly event, saying, “This conference is a great opportunity to expand the borders of our intellectual community beyond the classroom and exchange ideas in a public and collegial fashion.”

All BSU students are encouraged to send in a piece of writing for consideration, as Bridgewater State University hopes to receive many submissions this year.

Bruns explains, “If you are interested, please submit a rough draft, along with a 250-300 word abstract (a title and description of your proposed paper’s topic and argument) via email by Wednesday, March 16th to the Bridgewater State English Society (englishsocietybsu@gmail. com).”

She continues, “Creative writing submissions should be the actual work you wish to present (2-3 poems/one short story no longer than 8-10 pages), and we will be in touch about the results of the selection process around the end of March.”

Co-Vice President of the English Society at BSU, Amelia Fuss, showed excitement about the event, saying, “I didn’t attend the event last year, but after hearing about how well it went, I am really looking forward to it this year.”

With only a few weeks left to submit, BSU students should try to get their submissions in as soon as possible so they will be able to participate in this year’s great event.

“I strongly believe that BSU English majors are some of the smartest people on campus,” said Bruns. “I can’t wait to see what wonders they do at this year’s conference.”

Any other questions can be directed to Sarah Bruns (sbruns@student. bridgew.edu), Brianna Hynes (bhynes@student.bridgew.edu), or Dr. Ellen Scheible (Ellen.Scheible@bridgew.edu).
