Submit News

The Department of English is proud to showcase the work and accomplishments of its faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. Our monthly newsletter is a great place to share shorter announcements about recent publications, conferences, events, activities, and awards. (Newsletter stories can be submitted using this form.)

If you have a bigger story to share, you can now submit it for consideration as a news feature using the form below. The Department Chair (Marco Abel) and the IT & Media Specialist (Erin Chambers) retain editorial control over what is published on the department pages and in what form; depending on volume, some stories may be shared via social media but not published on the department home page.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter and note your username below if you would like us to tag you when sharing your story.

Writing Guidelines

  • Write in 3rd person, in news style. "Tuesday marks the 20th anniversary of Bathilda Bagshot's award-winning textbook, Hogwarts: A History. Bagshot is Godric Gryffindor Professor of History at Hogwarts and author of..."
  • Place asterisks around text that should be italicized, such as the title of a book, journal, or other periodical. (See Hogwarts: A History above.) Bold or underlined text is reserved for headings only.
  • Links are encouraged! Place them in curly brackets, following the words that should be linked, like so: "She recently published an essay at {Watershed blog}." Do not use bare links (i.e., "He currently blogs at") or phrases like "click here." Links should be applied to words within the flow of the narrative.
  • When a news story is posted, only the first 500-600 characters appear on the department homepage. Keep this in mind as you're writing the story.
