From the Editor's Desk

Thank you for subscribing to and reading The Annex! As last month's Letter from the Chair noted, our hope is that this newsletter will provide one way that current members, alumni, and friends of the English Department can stay connected to each other and to all of the exciting things that are happening in and around the Marist Annex. 

To that end, I would like to invite submissions from our community for future issues of The Annex:

  • If you are a current student (graduate or undergraduate), please let us know about your recent publications, awards, presentations, etc.
  • If you are an alumnus/a and are willing to be featured on our alumni profiles page, we would love to hear from you!
  • If you would like to contribute an article or announcement, please contact me via email ( with your ideas or with an inquiry about upcoming profiles or reviews that we are hoping to feature.

In future issues, we would love to highlight projects that current students and alumni are involved in off-campus that would be of interest to readers of The Annex, as well as recruit writers to cover talks, workshops, and readings here at Catholic U.

You can also keep up with the latest news and events, including recent publications, presentations, and awards on our News and Events page!
