Northern Eclecta is produced by students in the ENGL 213, 313, and 413: Literary Publications classes. The instructor for these courses is Eunice Johnston. Northern Eclecta 6 is available in The English Department Office, Morrill 219. Cost: $6.
Each spring, students enrolled in NDSU’s English Literary Publication class produce a volume of the literary journal, Northern Eclecta. The publication features original works by NDSU and secondary school students in the form of fiction, non-fiction, art, photography and poetry.
Submissions for Northern Eclecta, Volume 7 are now officially open. NDSU students from all academic backgrounds are encouraged to contribute creative works. Past contributors range from communication, journalism and English majors to food science, accounting, mechanical engineering and veterinary technology majors. The section, “The Next Generation,” features the works of area secondary school students. New to the 2013 edition, submissions will be accepted from NDSU alumni.
Submitting is free and submissions can include up to 2 works of fiction, up to 2 works of nonfiction, up to 4 poems, up to six pieces of short fiction, up to 3 photographs, and up to 3 pieces of art per person. Pieces are selected during blind readings, meaning the author/artist is undisclosed and students included in the journal will receive a complimentary copy.

CEC: CONVERSATIONAL ENGLISH CIRCLES
Conversational English Circles is an activity sponsored by the NDSU English Club. Members of the English Club (mostly undergraduate English and English Education majors) invite international students to participate in informal conversations on a weekly basis. International students have an opportunity to improve their conversational English skills and to learn more about American culture. American students develop an improved sense of idiomatic English, and they also learn about other countries and cultures. All meetings are held on Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. Everyone is invited to participate.
SIGMA TAU DELTA
Dr. Kevin Brooks, Sigma Tau Delta advisor
The Spectrum is the campus student-run newspaper. It provides NDSU students with a unique opportunity to become more involved with the campus community while getting paid for doing it. As a writer, your voice is heard. With designated news, features, A&E, opinion and sports sections, whatever you want your voice to be, NDSU Spectrum can help you speak it. As an English studies student, writing for The Spectrum is a natural extension of a degree in English. For more information about the publication visit the NDSU Spectrum website or stop by 254 Memorial Union.
