The English Graduate Student Association (EGSA) brings together students in the Master of Arts in English and Master of Arts in Writing and Publishing graduate programs, seeking to enhance the experience of the students in both programs through social and cultural events in and around Chicago.

Each spring and fall, EGSA invites students in the M.A. in English and the M.A. in Writing and Publishing programs to join the organization and get involved in planning events.

From 2010-2012, EGSA hosted an annual Spring Conference featuring the work of DePaul’s undergraduate and graduate English students. This year, the conference is expanding and involvement is opening to the entire DePaul English Department. For more information about Spring English Conference, including topics and proceedings from previous years, please visit its new homepage here.

For other questions about EGSA and how to get involved, please contact Prof. John Shanahan at
