The time has come to be more involved with your program! Three committees are looking for students in English Lit and Creative Writing and require not a large amount of commitment and it is all for your personal benefit and the benefit of your peers!

If you want to sit on the Curriculum Committee and help develop new courses, fine-tune calendar descriptions and freshen up old courses then this is the position for you!

If you’re interested in talks and lectures offered at Concordia and you want to help decide and invite guest scholars then the Speaker’s Committee is for you!

And finally, if you want to help solve any issues pertaining to the Creative Writing department then the Creative Writing Committee is the committee for you!

Email me, Jess Marchand, at if you have ANY questions or concerns and if you are at all interested!! I’ll be in the office this week Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00-2:45 and Thursdays from 4:00-6:00 if you want to stop by our office LB-646! I hope to hear from you!
