ACADEMICS

  • English Creativity

    Outside the lecture hall, you will have many opportunities to indulge your creativity and showcase your work. Whether you prefer to celebrate the Bard at our annual Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference, wax poetic in our annual Dr. A. Barbara Pilon Poetry Contest, or enlighten and inform through your submission to The New Worcester Spy online news and literary magazine, you’ll find the right creative outlet for your interests and talents at Worcester State University. If you excel both in and out of the classroom, you’ll have the opportunity to join our chapter of Lambda Iota Tau, an international honor society dedicated to literature.

    We recognize these remarkable student-faculty collaborations at our annual Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity. Recent projects include:

    • The Goodbyemoon: A Memoir of Loss
    • Introducing Elizabeth Bishop, Poetry, and Writing as a Process
    • The New Worcester Spy: Recent Projects and Developments
