Duke English Undergraduate Distinction Day

Please join us Friday, April 19, for the English Department's Distinction Day, which will be a great opportunity for you to see what a completed project looks like, how creative you can get, and in how many ways you can develop your interests. There will be a Q&A at the end of each session, so you'll have the opportunity to ask questions. If you cannot make it in person, you can join via Zoom. We'll circulate a Zoom link prior to the event.
