"For thirty years, it has been my desire to organize a conference unique in targeting undergraduates, thus giving them an opportunity to present papers both critical and creative, to an audience of peers from campuses across the country," said Mikel Vause, Professor of English and Founder of the National Undergraduate Literature Conference at Weber State University. "Throughout the years, the students, faculty and members of the community who once attended the conference, have gone on to have successful careers as educators and writers. We look forward to increasing the opportunities for Utahns to interact and learn from these individuals."
The featured writers include the following:
"The National Undergraduate Literature Conference is a unique forum for writers to work side-by-side with students and community members on their writing, and in turn, risk, explore, and experiment on the page with their stories," said Williams, one of the scheduled keynotes for NULC 2015. "I look forward to being a part of next year's conference in the name of home. I have great respect for what Mike Vause has created through his vision over the years. I remember attending years ago as a younger writer when Peter Matthiessen was speaking. I was inspired."
