Upcoming Activities in Semester 1!

It’s the start of the new semester again, and we have a slew of activities and updates for you!

First off,


Pretty much what it says on the poster. If you’ve any interest in the literary arts at all (or better yet, already plan to take a course in English Literature, Linguistics, or Theatre Studies), we would like to get to know you. Come on down and meet like-minded people whom you’ll come to call friends in the years to come.

And secondly,


Like to talk about books? Come and join us for our book club sessions. This semester, we talk about contemporary classics and bestsellers – five of them in five separate sessions!

For the first session on The Handmaid’s Tale, the details are as follows:

Date: 16 Aug 2013

Time: 4.30pm – 6pm

Venue: NUS Literary Society Room, AS5/0302

*The Handmaid’s Tale is one of the texts in the module EN4241 Utopias and Dystopias. Kill two birds with one stone by coming down for the session!

We’re not done yet!


Once again, the poster says it all! Aspiring poets can do much worse than to come and pick the brains of our established poet, Jerrold Yam. If you’re coming, do buy a drink from Starbucks as thanks for lending us the lovely venue.

And finally,


If you don’t know already, this is the design for this year’s NUS ELL student t-shirt! It’s $12 each. Proceeds from the sale of the shirts will go into funding the activities we’ll be running for you throughout the year ahead! If you’re interested, you can order yours at this link:
The size chart is as follows:


Photos of the sample is available on our Facebook page:

And that’s what we have planned for the first half of the semester. If there’s anything else you would like to see implemented, do drop us a note at nusliterarysociety@gmail.com or better yet, come down to the Welcome Tea and tell us in person.

Have a wonderful semester ahead!
