UArts Literary Society
UArts Literary Society Mission Statement
The UArts Literary Society was founded in the hopes of providing a warm and open atmosphere for students to discuss novels, plays and poetry. Over the years, the society has expanded its topics of discussion to a much broader range of subjects; covering music, art, film, animation, current events and pop culture. We are much more than a mere “Book Club”
The members of the Literary Society believe that it is important to study and discuss all facets of our culture in order to understand the world around us and develop the ability to create works of art and literature that are relevant and meaningful to the populace. By working as a group, we strive to dissect any and all media that comes within or reach pinpoint its virtues and flaws, whether that media is a modern television commercial or a century-old play.
It is our goal to provide students with a forum that will allow them to share their thought with other open-minded and well-informed youths, creating an open discussion where they can choose to combat or combine ideas and theories using the input from the members of the group who attend the meetings, we will also decide upon a selection of writings to read and discuss each week, allowing students to share their favorite literature in the hopes that they will help each other find interesting stories and poems that they wouldn’t have known about otherwise, simultaneously with these meetings, members are expected to create their own works of art or text for the Literary Society’s publication
In short we hope to converse about and learn from the ideas of others in order to produce out own works of art and literature, which we will then publish, sharing our own ideas with our fellow students and world at large
