The English Department at Perimeter College gives students far more than skills, rules and basic elements of good writing. In our courses, students gain the ability to think analytically and critically. That’s important today, when employers seek candidates who can problem solve in an ever-changing world. At Perimeter College, students learn how to communicate effectively, how to think creatively and how to clearly articulate a well-reasoned solution.
Because all students are required to take at least two composition courses, the English Department is Perimeter College’s largest academic department. Our instructors are highly credentialed, and our primary responsibility is teaching. All faculty teach first-year composition and are dedicated to providing exceptional quality instruction in core areas, so students may take classes with experienced, dedicated professors from the start. In all of our courses—from literature to creative writing, learning support to composition—our focus is student success.
Revival: Lost Southern Voices Festival
Revival: Lost Southern Voices — A Festival for Readers is a celebration of lost or underappreciated Southern writers and their works. During this two-day literary festival, invited authors and scholars discuss writers whose groundbreaking voices no longer receive the attention they deserve.
We invite the public, scholars, students, writers, and readers to join us as we revive these lost voices. This two-day literary festival is co-hosted annually by Perimeter College Georgia State University and the Georgia Center for the Book, with support from Georgia Humanities.
In the spring of 2022, we look forward to presenting our sixth annual Revival: Lost Southern Voices — A Festival for Readers. Please see our website for additional details. Please plan to attend!
