2020 Advertising Opportunities

Promote activities to thousands of English honor students!

Sigma Tau Delta’s annual international convention offers a rare opportunity for organizations to promote to 1,100 upper-level English honor students from across the US and abroad.

Convention attendees are excited about English, and over the course of the 3 1/2-day event present their original works and share their enthusiasm for English language, literature, and writing. Many plan to further their education and are actively seeking graduate and post-graduate opportunities.
