Warwick Literature Society
Welcome to the home of the University of Warwick’s literary enthusiasts!
As our Society Constitution states, we are here
“To promote the enjoyment and appreciation of literature in the university community regardless of degree course”
So by becoming a member, you can get involved in any or all of the events hosted by the society, which range widely from social to academic.
There are many Lit Soc social events running throughout the year, including regular circles before POP!, bar crawls in Leamington, the annual ball and an incredibly successful foreign tour. Whilst we love living it up on nights out, we also run far more relaxed socials during exam season, such as cafe de-stress sessions and quiz nights.
Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in place, the events we can hold have been limited, but that doesn't mean we haven't got anything in mind! The majority of our events will be taking place virtually, ranging from casual video calls to virtual circles, quizzes, and speaker events. As restrictions are lifted throughout the year, we are hoping we can arrange more in person socially distanced events outdoors, like coffee mornings, picnics and circles.
As an academic society we additionally offer Academic Aid for literature students, acting as a helping hand from the first days at university through to dissertation hand-in day! Our Freshers Guide PDF (available here) outlines aspects of the course you might not have managed to read about yet, whilst also detailing some university essentials and tips for life at Warwick. Last year, we ran academic support drop in sessions to guide freshers through the literature workload, getting to grips with essays and so much more, and we are hoping to continue this virtually this year. If you don't have time to join a video call, our exec will always be more than happy to answer any questions or give out any advice. Our Families Scheme also provides people with a great support network and people to turn to if any questions need answering or advice needs giving, also providing another chance to meet people both in and outside of your year group!
