English Department Clubs & Events

The English Department organizes a variety of programs and occasional events that provide students with valuable opportunities to meet and mingle with fellow students, with members of the faculty, and with a wide range of guest speakers and other campus visitors. 


We have an active chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the international English honors society, and chapter members have a chance to present papers at the society's annual conference.


From time to time, members of the department faculty present research in progress as a part of the English Department Faculty Forum.

We host readings by established and emerging poets and fiction writers in the Voices of the Rainbow reading series, by distinguished Visiting Writers who teach in our Creative Writing MFA program, and by our own graduate students in the Creative Writiting MFA program's M.F.A. Reading Series.

For over thirty years, we have also welcomed a stream of distinguished scholars and writers to campus to deliver the Paumanok Lecture on American Literature and Culture.


Watch The Longest Island for announcements about upcoming events. 

You will also find announcements about Voices of the Rainbow events, MFA Reading Series events, and the Paumanok Lecture listed in the calendar on our LibraryThing venue page.
