SMU Literati (Literature & Writing)

SMULiterati Cover


As a member of the Arts and Cultural Fraternity (ACF), SMU Literati devotes itself to promoting the expression of the written and spoken word amongst SMU students. In a business school where staid academic literature reigns supreme, Literati strives to remind students of the fun in appreciating literature at leisure.

So come, partake in Singapore's literary scene alongside us! Find catharsis in Literati's Writing Competitions, and hone your craft by exchanging feedback with fellow writers at Writing Circle sessions. Publish your works in Literati's collaborations with SMU Libraries and other ACF clubs, such as our upcoming 2023 Vitality collaboration. A wide variety of other activities also awaits you, as Literati regularly plans initiatives with external organisations such as Migrant Workers of Singapore, Cat Welfare Society and more. If you're inclined to read our works, you may even anticipate Literati's anthology--slated to be published this year!

  2. Literary Discussions

"I've met some of the most interesting and passionate people through Literati. It is definitely a community that is dedicated to writing even amidst the mess that is university life. To create and capture the intricacies of life amidst our hectic schedules, is an art form I would not want to miss."

- Rachelle, School of Social Sciences, Year 3 (President)


"SMU Literati is a calm breeze in the hailstorm of academics. It's given me a comforting avenue to express myself creatively. I'm glad to be a part of a warm community of writers who support, push, and help each other grow through contests and insightful workshops all year round."

- Renald, School of Social Sciences, Year 3


We do not have regular CCA sessions, but this semester (AY 2021/2022 Term 1), we are piloting a Writing Circle in which members can gather weekly or fortnightly on Friday evenings to discuss and experiment with writing techniques.

We are on the lookout for competition opportunities and encourage members to take part as well!

We are looking to publish our first-ever anthology this year! Do also look out for our emails, and submit your works to our website for them to be featured!

Absolutely not! We welcome all budding poets and readers alike. In fact, join us and you may find our members providing you with further recommendations!

We are looking to foster an active culture of writing and reading, and you can most definitely contribute to our community as the club takes a step in this direction!
