GIOVANNA, PRESIDENT

It is I, Giovanna the omniscient President.

I am a second-year Comparative Literature student who wants to expand the Creative Writing Society’s connections with the publishing/editing world and provide more opportunity for international students.

I love writing in all its synaesthetic forms - stories, song, theatre, podcast, radio, journalism. I am bi and bilingual and can usually be found haunting the Strand Campus; if by chance you spot me (or you have any questions at all about the society, of course), do not hesitate to make contact. Caution: My hair color may have changed by then.

Tess, VP

Hey everyone! I’m Tess and I’m your Vice President :)

I’m a third-year Comparative Literature with Film Studies student and my writing these days mainly consists of poetry and short plays. My goal for the Creative Writing Society is to build new connections with the “outside world”, as scary and exciting as it may sound.

I think it’s important for everyone to feel included in the society as we are a community, a large family, that comes together sharing different ideas and styles under the same roof; it is really its diversity that makes the society so great.

P.S. If you see me around Strand please please come and say hi (I’m always in need of a big hug)!

Lea, Treasurer

Hey guys!

I am your treasurer Lea and here to handle our finances. Besides being quite good with money, I am also a voracious reader and passionate writer. Writing is my favourite way of expression and a form of art that allows me to channel my creativity.

I love the magical feeling of opening a good book and being absorbed by the story within, whether it's written by a famous author or by you.

ANNIE, EDITOR

Hi, I’m Annie, a second year English student and your editor this year.

I decided I wanted to be an author at age four and had my first publishing rejection when I was ten years old (it was deserved: the story was terrible). My two remaining brain cells think writing is the best form of catharsis there is, so I’m super excited to be your editor and to be more involved in the society that I loved so much last year.

Jan, Social Secretary

Hi! I'm Jan, a second-year English undergrad and your Social Secretary for this year. I'm looking forward to keeping you all up to date with what's going on, and listening to what you'd like to see from us!

I mostly write poetry and short scripts, that mostly remain unfinished. I've loved the community that Creative Writing has given me in the past year, and I'm excited to keep it going, making it bigger and better. If you see me around, give me a shout :)
