Illinois Department of English Blog


Welcome to the Department of English blog.

My name is Vicki Mahaffey and I took over as
head of the department on July 1, 2016. I'll be using this site to post updates and information of interest to our faculty, students, and alumni,
along with reflections about our discipline(s) in particular and the humanities in general. As anyone who has ever worked or studied here knows, the Department of English is a vibrant place. If you have something you'd like to see posted here, or if you want to contact me about the content of this blog, drop me an email at

Ninth Letter: roostery goodness!

Here's something to crow about.

Pictured to your left is the latest issue of Ninth Letter, the literary magazine that we produce in conjunction with the good people over at UIUC's School of Art + Design.  It is stuffed, as always, with the best in new writing, for which we can thank the general editor, Jodee Stanley, and Creative Writing faculty Janice Harrington, Philip Graham, and Mike Madonick, who all worked on this issue as genre-specific lead editors.

You can find more information on this particular issue here.  Don't you think it would be better, though, to just go ahead and order a copy?  You can do that here.  Alternatively, if you are feeling like a patron of the arts today (or if you happen to be a billionaire philanthropist superhero*), then you might want to click directly through to this page, where you can make a gift to support Ninth Letter.

*Note: I am neither linking to a picture of Tony Stark nor or to a picture of Bruce Wayne, despite our department's close personal connection with the latter.
