Submission Guidelines

Format: Send your submission as an attachment in a standard text format such as .doc, .docx, or as plain text (.txt) or as a common image file type such as .png, .jpeg, or .bmp to filibuster@aum.edu. Also, please include in the subject line of the email the kind of submission following by the title of the work (e.g. Subject: Poem - "My Poem's Title"). There is no limit on the number of submissions per person. Submissions not accepted for Filibuster 2016 are eligible for forwarding to Filibuster 2017.

Word Limit: Please limit writing submissions to 4000 words or less; however, if the editors determine that a longer work calls for a full treatment in Filibuster, a submission in excess of this limit may still be considered for publication.

Sigma Tau Delta

The official purposes of Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society, are literary, educational, and charitable. The Society seeks to confer distinction for high achievement in English language and literature in undergraduate, graduate, and professional studies; to provide cultural stimulation and to promote interest in literature and the English language in the surrounding community; to foster the discipline of English in all its aspects, including creative and critical writing; to promote good fellowship among its members; and to exhibit high standards of academic excellence. 

To become a member of Sigma Tau Delta you must have a minimum of two college courses in English language or literature beyond freshman English, and at least a B average in English. You are not required to major in English: many members major in Education, for instance.

Membership

Membership in Sigma Tau Delta requires payment of a combined one-time initiation fee of $60, $40 of which is the fee for the international organization. Members of STD are entitled to compete for scholarships and enter contests sponsored by the Society, and they may also attend the Society’s annual conventions. 

If you are interested, please contact the sponsor, Dr. Michel Aaij, at maaij1@aum.edu.
