WSU to Host National Undergraduate Literature Conference

OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University will host the 23rd Annual National Undergraduate Literature Conference March 29-31.

The three-day conference is the only literature conference in the country that focuses exclusively on undergraduates. Students across the country submit pieces in one of seven categories: American Literature, British Literature, World Literature, Essays, Fiction, Poetry and Creative Works in Spanish. Many students then have the opportunity to make presentations about their work at the conference.

This year’s featured speakers include Ana Menéndez, a former New York Times Fellow, and David Lee, Utah’s first Poet Laureate. Lee will speak at 11 a.m. March 30, while Menéndez will speak at 4 p.m. that same day. Both presentations will be in the Stewart Stadium Sky Suites on the Ogden campus.

With the exception of a banquet on March 29, all of the conference sessions and readings are free and open to the public. For more information or to view a complete schedule of the conference, visit
