One of the newest in the list of student clubs at IITM, the Writing Club is looking to be many things. Aptly named ‘Writing’ Club, we concentrate on anything written – essays, stories, poems or just plain emails! We, at the Club, seek to inculcate a culture of written expression in the institute, across departments and batches. With the possibility of expanding to the vernacular as well, the Writing Club is the place to be if you want to put pen to paper.
To walk away to hoots of laughter after livening up a piece of writing
To take a quarrel or an argument on stage and turn it into legend
To look people in the eye and win points by correcting grammar
To sound important or earnest or just plain brilliant
To master the art of learning to speak and to fall in love with the some
