Submit to ICUCOW

Submissions for ICUCOW are closed until next year's conference is announced. In order to help inform and prepare you for the conference should you wish to submit, below is a sample of the information required for all potential speakers.

  • Name (as you would like it to appear in the program and proceedings)
  • Year in School
  • Major(s)
  • Minor(s), if any
  • Phone number where you can be reached (cell phones are best if you do not use your room phone)
  • Year of graduation
  • Class and instructor or occasion of the writing
  • Semester you wrote the paper
  • Interesting fact about you or your favorite author

Advice to potential speakers:

  • Please keep length under approximately 2400 words or about 8 pages.
  • You can submit papers from this year or previous years, but the work must have been done at Illinois College.
  • Submitted papers need not be final drafts; we will accept very rough drafts if they show potential, and we will help you editorially.
  • We will look over any and all submissions and e-mail you back with details on revision and inclusion in the conference.

Thank you for your contributions!
