Calling all those who teach English courses at UWM!
Last summer, you may have seen a call for submissions of excellent undergraduate and graduate work to be included in the department’s Student Work web magazine, spring 2012 issue. If you’ve already nominated students for inclusion, thank you! If you have more student projects you’d like to nominate, or if you are hearing about this for the first time…
The magazine showcases excellent undergraduate *and graduate* work in English courses across all tracks and plans. If any of your students’ work from spring 2011 or fall 2011 deserves to be showcased, please send me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the student’s name and email address, the name of the piece (if you still have it), and the course it’s from by Monday, April 16. I can then contact students for their permission and their files, as well as statements about their work.
We’re interested in essays, poems, stories, images, digital texts, web applications, videos, crafts, comics… you name it: if it can be digitized (which might mean scanning/photographing something), we can use it.
Work from THIS semester would go in the spring 2013 issue — stay tuned for more info about that, or feel free to send those nominations now.
Thanks for your help in making our department an encouraging presence in the lives of students.
