Concordia University has announced a call for papers for its 10th Annual English Literature Graduate Colloquium, which will take place March 2-3, 2012 at Concordia University in Montreal.  This year’s Colloquium, entitled  “Enunciating the End: The Apocolypse, Textual Futures, and What Comes Next,” will investigate the concept of ‘ending’ as it pertains to us in literature, culture, and the scope of history.

Graduate students are invited to contribute to this interdisciplinary English Literature colloquium by submitting a 200-250 word abstract and a 50-100 word bio to no later than Jan. 13th, 2012. Click to enlarge the flyer for more information, and visit their very cool blog at

On Monday, we posted about the great selection of events coming up at the Guild Literary Complex (have you submitted your prose for the Prose Awards yet?). Today we have a few more details about one of those events.

This Friday, Oct. 14 begins the 2011 Season of Tour Guides. Poetry meets the stage meets Chicago in this theatrical exploration of urban life. Collaboratively written by members of the Poetry Performance Incubator, this ensemble piece offers a lyrical tour of the Chicago tourists never see. The 2011 production combines some of what you loved from the 2010 production – including award-winning theater director and poet Coya Paz- along with brand new writing and a brand new cast.

The show runs Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Oct. 14th – Nov. 6th at 7pm at the Logan Square Arts Center, 2800 N. Milwaukee Ave. (2nd floor), Chicago

Tickets are $10 online OR $15 at the door (students $10 at the door with student i.d.) Details and tickets at
