Sigma Tau Delta is the international English Honor Society, and Marquette's Beta Delta chapter encourages qualified English majors to apply for membership. Each spring the Mae E. Gales Creative Writing Contest and the Zadock Essay Contest award prizes in poetry or short fiction and in the essay, respectively.

The Marquette Literary Review, the campus literary magazine, provides editorial and publishing experience for undergraduates and awards prizes in fiction and poetry. In addition, Sigma Tau Delta publishes The Sigma Tau Delta Review for members' critical works and The Rectangle for creative writing.
