Come and Meet Us

This year, we are holding weekly Creative Writing Workshops as a friendly space to develop and share your work with other writers with anonymous submissions! These sessions might include slam poetry, spoof pieces and maybe even writing for BathTimes, the student newspaper, itself!

 The Monthly Book Club will involve a poll to decide the book of the month and the location of the book club may change every month from Toppings, a bookstore in Bath, to a cafe meetup. So, keep and eye out on our insta for more details!

 Throughout the year, we will also be hosting many bookish events, such Blind Date with a Book, an exciting book crawl around Bath, Goodreads competitions and many more to come!

 For more details about our workshops or the society, ask a member of the committee! We'd love to see you there! If you have any questions, send your emails to su-litsoc@bath.ac.uk or send us a dm on insta @bathunilitsoc!
