Starting university, as we’ve all come to know, can be overwhelming – but choosing a society to join is as exciting as it is daunting. Sadly, for a uni that boasts over 50 societies, it was sadly lacking in a society for English Literature.
Regardless of your area of study, English Literature is a bridge, or a door, or an interdimensional portal (metaphor) to many a time, place, society or fantasy (fact). It has brilliant opportunities for those who join; whether you enjoy writing, performing or simply reading, our goal is to organise socials and events that will introduce you to the wealth of literary culture that the world has to offer. Our committee is made of colourful characters from the Vice-President “The Hand” Daniel Trigg, who plots to overthrow the President “Genioose” Will Moss, to Katie Dale, Charity, Communication and Education Officer, reveller-extraordinaire Annabeth as Social Sec and Zara “Gringotts” Gilleck as Treasurer. This society aims to reintroduce English Literature to those at RHUL as an inclusive passion.
