UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Students who have a love for English may participate in the Literary Society, Prologue, Sigma Tau Delta, or SPEAK.
Prologue is the University of Wisconsin-River Falls student literary and art publication. Each issue contains the writing and artwork of UWRF undergraduate students, graduate students, and recent graduates. Literary submissions range from poems to short stories to creative essays. Original works of art, such as drawings, photographs, and images of metal and glasswork, are found throughout the publication.
Submissions are accepted in the early weeks of spring semester - more information to follow and can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no hard limit to the number/length of submissions, but be reasonable.
The University of Wisconsin - River Falls chapter of Sigma Tau Delta is Kappa Sigma. Sigma Tau Delta is an international honor society for English majors, minors, and qualifying non-majors. Kappa Sigma (local chapter) is an academic and service organization that:
Sigma Tau Delta-Kappa Sigma has hosted poets and writers such as Thomas R. Smith, Robert Schuler, Amy Knox Brown, and John McNally for the Student Reading Series.
Many members work on the UWRF annual student publication Prologue as well as raise money for a local charity, and finance a subscription to Studies in the Novel, a literature journal previously not carried by the UWRF Chalmer Davee Library.
Associate membership is available to currently enrolled students, undergraduates and graduates, who have the requisite academic background, but who are not majoring or minoring in English. Faculty are also eligible for an associate membership.
