Literary Club Activities

The Literary Club was initiated in the year 2006 under the ISTD Chapter, with the chief objective to hone the literary skills of the students. In addition, the Literary Club aims at enhancing the much required communication and soft skills of the students by means of giving them exposure to the various literary activities. Under the aegis of this Club, every year various literary contests like Creative Writing (English &Tamil), Mock GD, mock Interview, Just A Minute (JAM), Spin A Yarn, Shipwreck, Young Lawyers are conducted and Prizes are given to the winners on Literary Day – the Intra collegiate literary event. The Club encourages students to participate in inter-collegiate competitions also and exhibit their talents. Our students have won prizes in many competitions and brought laurels to our college. Litrapture, an annual inter-collegiate literary fest has been conducted since 2008. It offers an exciting forum for talented young minds to showcase their language and literary skills. Innovative events like Online Quiz, Block and Tackle, Adzap, etc. are conducted. A newsletter called Writers Inc. is also published every year, which enriches the students with the rich experience of bringing out a magazine for themselves and by themselves. This newsletter helps in uniting students through talent recognition and serves as an interface between seniors and juniors. On the whole, the Literary Club serves to shape the personality of the students and improve their employability skills.
