Follow Us On Social Media

The English Department maintains a vibrant presence online with its blog and several social media channels, all of which are managed by Wayne Berninger.

Roughly three times a day, we post something amusing, interesting, or provocative on our Facebook page. We encourage comments and conversation




We also have a Facebook page for Downtown Brooklyn (the literary magazine of the English Department), where you will find a gallery of our past covers and a steady stream of tongue-in-cheek (or are they?) "writing-assignments."





Our Twitter stream is filled with links that readers and writers should find interesting, as well as reminders about Department events. We repost many of these items on our Facebook page but not all, so you'll have to follow us if you want to catch everything!







Follow our Tumblr -- what do English majors know? -- for a series of cool photos, each accompanied by deep thoughts about the reading and writing life.

We are using Pinterest to organize links to a wide variety of articles that should be of interest to students of writing, literature, and the humanities.
