"UB faculty member Nnedi Okorafor has become only the fourth
author in the past 20 years to write a novella that jointly earned
Hugo and Nebula awards, two of the science fiction genre’s
highest literary honors."
In 2015, the English Department submitted its first nominations
to the Associated Writing Program’s Intro Journals Project. A
literary competition designed to discover and publish “the
best new works by students enrolled in AWP member programs,”
the Intro Journals Project often serves as a first stepping
stone—an entry point—into young writers’
publishing careers. Competition for the prizes is stiff.
UB is proud to serve as the administrative host for the
Northeast Modern Language Association, a scholarly organization for
professionals in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and
other modern languages.
