Now's the Time to Think About Fundraising
Submissions closed Monday 10/28 at midnight. Our small army of judges will be working hard in November, and we anticipate sending email notifications of acceptances in December. Please keep an eye on your email.
Here are some things you can do while you wait:
- Start raising money for your trip to Savannah.
- If you haven't yet, read the 2014 Common Reader, We the Animals.
- Explore works by our featured speakers.
- Watch this site and the Facebook page for news.
Even a quick glance at the submissions suggests the 2014 Convention will be rich in exciting, informative paper and roundtable presentations. We're looking forward to seeing you in Savannah!
The RIVER CURRENT may be our oldest metaphor for the irresistible movement of time. But "current" can also point to the present, to what's new, to the ever-changing world of today. In 2014 we'll meet along the banks of the Savannah, a river rich in the currents of history. Its lazy brown waters remind one of Huck and Jim and the ways a literary work can stir the waters of its culture, creating currents that carry us from the old to the new.
Join us in Savannah, Georgia, for a very special 2014 Convention, as we celebrate Sigma Tau Delta's 90th birthday. Like Huck and Jim we'll trust to the current, but we'll be swept along by good books, good talk, and good fellowship—a RIVER CURRENT of fellow Sigma Tau Deltans.
