Mostly Blue: Writing Society
Warwick Writing Society (WriSoc) provides budding writers with the perfect opportunity to relax and explore their creativity. It does not matter whether or not you have written before; WriSoc’s friendly and welcoming atmosphere gives university students of all years the chance to share their own pieces of writing.
Mostly Purple: Literature Society
LitSoc is perfect for anyone who loves reading, books, culture or the literary world! On the academic side, we run aid sessions to help students with essays, note taking and revision while also hosting “Curiositea Catchups” which allow students to talk through any issues they may have.
Lit Soc events are a great way to recover from the stresses of uni work, with events such as a weekly themed circle, a packed Lit Week, barcrawls, the infamous Lit and Lang ball, quizzes and a foreign tour to Amsterdam.
Mostly Green: Cobalt Magazine
Make your first year at university count by joining Warwick’s very own specialised creative arts magazine. Submissions include creative writing, comment pieces, photography, lifestyle articles and so much more! There are also a range of workshops available throughout the year. Whether you are interested in producing creative content or fascinated by editing and formatting, Cobalt is the society to be part of this year.
Mostly Red: Shakespeare Society
At the University of Warwick Shakespeare Society, we are both an academic and a performance society. What that means is that unlike the other theatre societies, we also run a number of discussions and workshops surrounding various aspects of The Bard and his contemporaries. We encourage our members to submit their own productions, be it a classic interpretation or something wildly different. We also have a termly “Sh!tf@ced Shakespeare” where our members can even enjoy Shakespeare while they party on! If it can be linked to Shakespeare, we’ll be there to support it.
