Chapter Enrollment and Activities—Spring 2024

If you are a chapter that traditionally enrolls new members in the spring, here are a few tips:


  • Start early. Enrolling new members in January and February ensures students have more opportunity to participate in your local chapter activities and in Society-wide awards and events.
  • Reach out to eligible students outside of your English Department.
  • Contact other faculty and departments to let them know about Sigma Tau Delta.
  • Host an event such as a scavenger hunt or a fun reading of someone’s work. Offer snacks and / or extra credit.
  • Reach out to your university’s PR department or school newspaper to see if they’d run a story about an event you’re hosting or interview a student who has participated in the convention or Society programs.


  • Use Write Away’s invite enrollment feature to manage to gather student’s information and fees.
  • Membership enrollment can occur at any time before your chapter induction.
  • Place your orders for graduation merchandise early to avoid shipping delays.

Plan to Attend the Convention

  • Register a group of students to attend the 2024 Centennial Convention in St. Louis, April 3–6, 2024. Lowest rates are available through February 1.
