Threshold, Radio DePaul, Chicago Book Expo, and More!

We are pleased to announce that graduate student Meredith Boe and undergrad Sally Wiegel have been selected as editors for Threshold Literary Journal; and that grad students Colin Harris and Marcy Farrey have been selected as hosts for the Radio DePaul creative writing show.  Both Threshold and the Radio DePaul show will be looking for great student work quickly into the Winter Quarter.  So take some time this winter break to put your poems, essays and stories through one more draft, and start getting ready to apply.

Details will be posted on Ex Libris as we get them, so check back frequently to find out when and how you can submit your work!

Tonight is the kickoff of the 2011 Chicago Book Expo‘s Preface Reading Series. This curated series offers a different literary event at a different Uptown location each night from Nov. 14th-18th. See the full lineup here.

The main event takes place this weekend, Nov. 19th & 20th at Uptown Goldblatt’s Building (former Borders Books), 4720 N. Broadway. The Book Expo will feature a variety or events and workshops, many of them free, including a book fair featuring 40 small Chicago Publishing companies. Visit the Chicago Writers House website for full schedules and information.

Arcadia, a semi-annual literary magazine, is now accepting submissions for volume 4, due out in spring 2012.  As always, they are looking for great short fiction, poems, drama, and creative nonfiction, but they also pride ourselves in not ascribing to a certain aesthetic.  So if you have work that defies categorization, send it their way.  In short, Arcadia is looking for the best work we can find, no matter the medium or genre.  For more information on submission guidelines, visit

And finally, if you missed last week’s Career Panel for English Students, or if you enjoyed it so much you want to see it again, you’re in luck! Prof. Chris Green has provided us with video of the event. You can watch it here
