1.The Western Regional Honors Conference is having a virtual conference in April. If you would like to present a paper, creative work, or academic poster at this event, you need to submit your proposal here https://www.suu.edu/wrhc2021/ prior to the deadline of February 16th, 2021. Once they group the presentations, you’ll upload your work and just give a short overview of it at your session. Then you, the other students presenting, and members like me in the Zoom audience will have a discussion and ask questions. Registration will open after the proposal deadline has passed. Early registration is $25 by April 1 and $40 after April 1. The conference is April 10. The Lane Honors Program will pay early registration for up to eight honors students! You do not have to present to attend; however, presenting is a good experience to get comfortable try it out!

Welcome to Georgia Mae, our new co-editor of the newsletter! She has been at LCC for a year and joined the Lane Honors Program at the end of her first year. When asked why she joined Honors, she said, “I joined Honors because I had a goal to open as many doors as possible. My professor, Angie, recommended me for the Honors Program and I couldn’t say no!”
Georgia Mae is still deciding on a major because she has so many interests including: nutrition, law, business, and design. Her career goals include becoming an interior designer, a doula, and a nutritionist. In her free time, she enjoys indoor gardening, walking her dog, yoga, baking, learning, journaling, and binge-watching TV shows from the early 2000s. We are so lucky to have another amazing editor to work with Kyla Ramsey on this newsletter!
Laurie Notaro is a very funny, smart writer who has published twelve books and is a New York Times bestselling author! She is reading on November 6, 2020 from 3:00-4:00. Contact Ce Rosenow at RosenowC@lanecc.edu for the Zoom link to this event!

Many of you are engaged in undergraduate research in your classes, and you may be presenting some of that work at the college’s Undergraduate Research Fair and/or at the University of Oregon’s Undergraduate Research Symposium. Many of you are also wonderful fiction writers, painters, photographers, poets, song writers, and other types of writers and artists. It’s time to start publishing your work!
This publication workshop covers several aspects of the publication process:
- where to find places to submit your work,
- how to submit it,
- what to expect in response, and
- how to track submissions and publications.
Don’t forget that Lane Community College has its own journal, Denali!
When you do have work published, be sure to add that information to your CV and resume. See this Curriculum (CV) Workshop for more details.
