In 1985 Professor Mikel Vause and Professor Michael Meyer had an idea to organize a conference unique in requesting submissions from undergraduates only, thus giving the undergraduate an opportunity to present papers both critical and creative, to an audience of peers from campuses across the country. Since 1985, the NULC continues with the same mission, attracting some of the finest undergraduate students from every state to present their papers and to hear some of the most important writers in contemporary literature.
The National Undergraduate Literature Conference is held annually during the month of April on the campus of Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, and any undergraduate is welcomed to attend the conference. Those who have a submission accepted will present at a conference session. This year’s conference will be held March 31 – April 2, 2011 at the Weber State University campus in Ogden, Utah.
Future Conference Dates
April 4 – 6, 2013
April 3 – 5, 2014
