The WKU English department strongly encourages its majors and minors to seek out opportunities to share writing and research beyond the classroom. The imaginative writing and essays that you compose in class may be eligible for departmental or university-wide conferences, readings, and/or publications. If you would like to submit an essay or creative piece that you are working on for a class to an event or publication, check the links below for deadlines and requirements, and please consult in advance with your instructor. Your instructor may also know of additional opportunities. Check our creative writing bulletin board and the WKU Creative Writing Facebook group for more opportunities as well.
