In addition to our Board of Directors and this year’s committee, hundreds of graduate students from mostly the Departments of English and Writing & Rhetoric have volunteered their time and expertise over the past ten years to help make each year’s conference fun, engaging, enlightening, and successful. We simply could not do it without you!
