Calliope, WVU’s undergraduate lit mag, launched their 2017 issue with a reading in a packed Colson 130. Editor-in-Chief Mitchell Glazier welcomed contributors, faculty, family, and friends before handing things off to the readers.
When introducing Claire Beams at her reading on Monday, April 10th, Professor Glenn Taylor described her book, We Show What We Have Learned, as timely and timeless. That is exactly how her reading and subsequent Q&A session felt that evening.
On Wednesday, April 19th, students and faculty gathered to celebrate their accomplishments over the past year. The annual luncheon celebrates those who have won Department of English Awards for their writing, teaching, and service to the department.
