Meetings & Events


English at MU meets every other Tuesday on campus.  We congregate for literary activities, workshops, panel discussions, and other special events during the fall semester.  In the spring, we begin meeting weekly to join forces in publishing the university’s premier undergraduate literary journal – EPIC.
