Student Clubs & Activities

LTWR Students are a very active bunch! Whether you plan on going on to professional schools (Law, Medicine, Business), grad school, networking locally—or just finding a group of peers who will never make you feel lame for secretly watching Buffy or Game of Thrones—this is the place for you ... Get involved, join in, find your community!

The Literature & Writing Studies Club is open to all students interested in literary study and writing—and generally having fun!  The Club meets weekly on Thursdays from 12:00 p.m. - 12:45 p.m. in Markstein Hall 208.  Stop by a Club meeting to meet other students and learn about upcoming events.

Club meetings usually include a range of activities, including peer workshopping of writing (creative and analytical), discussions of literature, films, and television, and games.

Each semester, the Club hosts a number of special events, some of which are open to the public and some of which are only for members.  In past years, the Club has gone on field trips to Balboa Park and the Huntington Library, hosted an Open Mic Nite with the theme of “Write the Wrongs," and, most recently, created a website called Project Positivity

The Literature & Writing Studies Club is also the local chapter of the International English Honor Society, Sigma Tau Delta.  Members of the Literature & Writing Studies Club have the opportunity to join Sigma Tau Delta if they wish to do so (and meet the requirements).  Visit the Sigma Tau Delta website for more information about the national organization.  NOTE: Members of the Lit & Writing Club are NOT required to join Sigma Tau Delta.

Please feel welcome to contact the Faculty Advisors for the Club, Prof. Heidi Breuer, at, and Prof. Francesco Levato, at, for more information.
