LLCC English Studies Club

LLCC has an English Studies Club for those interested in books, film, creative writing, journalism, fan fiction, theater and performance, culture and media discussions and meeting new people. The English Studies Club is a student-run club, and in the past, club members have pursued a variety of activities, such as monthly book discussions, film screenings, creative writing groups for sharing and discussion, visits to sites of literary interest, attendance at local and regional cultural events, volunteering at local schools, essay discussions on topics of interest or just hanging out and having fun. Members have organized and helped with campus events as well, such as literary themed Halloween exhibits and activities, poetry slams or other live readings, panel discussions on selected themes, exhibits for African-American History Month and Women’s History Month, the Banned Book Celebration, the LLCC Lit Fest and anything else of interest to members and the community.

The first two meetings of the year will be held Monday, Sept. 13, 2 p.m. and Thursday, Sept. 16, 1 p.m. in Menard 1174. At these meetings, possible directions of the club for this year and leadership opportunities will be discussed. The club will also have a table at Club Information Day on Wednesday, Sept. 22 in A. Lincoln Commons.

For those that can’t come to campus but still want to participate, there will be virtual club membership opportunities to connect with other members and establish online activities and events. Students can contact to become a virtual member.
