We are the English and Creative Writing Society!

We're an award-winning society that holds fun and diverse events ranging from our weekly Book & Cake evenings to pub crawls, coffee crawls, writing workshops, interviews with published authors and poets, charity fundraisers, open mic nights, collaborations with other societies and more!

In this society, we are very proud of the great diversity amongst both our members and our committee. Promoting diversity as well as establishing a sincere sense of safety and inclusivity at all our events is of paramount importance to us. Our code of conduct, as a reflection of this, is relatively simple: we have a zero tolerance policy for bullying or harassment of any kind. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and other forms of bigotry or discrimination are not permitted at our events. Such behaviour will result in disciplinary actions.

Our society and events are a safe space for people of all races, nationalities, beliefs, sexualities and genders (etc) to exist as they are!

If you have any questions, head over to our Facebook page! (linked below) We have a Freshers group chat for welcoming students to the English department, both new and old. Just leave a comment on any post and we'll add you! Or, shoot us an email at scty13@aber.ac.uk.
