“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.” - Anaïs Nin
The one stop for all your literary and creative needs, that is how the literary society ‘LITSOC’ is defined which is one of the most educating and creative societies of our college IIEST.
If you’ve got a knack for expressing your emotions and thoughts eloquently on a piece of paper, if you’re able to piece together a bunch of letters into some words and arrange those individual words to possess a coherent meaning that leaves an indelible mark on the reader’s consciousness, start running and don’t stop until you’ve joined us.
But in an engineering college, such individuals rarely exist. So, this goes out to all of you. To each and every individual who is reading this. Even if you’ve never written for writing’s sake before, even if the very mention of Mark Twain or Shakespeare sends a shiver down your spine, we are here for you. And we desperately want you to join us.
What do you have to gain from this?
We’ll give you an argument you won’t be able to refute.
In a single day, we face different situations that invoke various emotions. Sometimes we are happy. Mostly we are irritated and exasperated. We believe emotions need to be released periodically. It’s like gas – The longer you hold it in, higher is your discomfort. However, gas can’t be trapped inside indefinitely. Sooner or later is seeps out (Ignore that!). Emotions are much easier to subdue. But they are much more lethal. Suppressed emotions can wreak havoc. They can destroy your mental makeup. You can be doing a fairly good job of confiding it until Wham! One day, a minor incident can trigger a flood, and all the emotions pour out in a turbulent mix of feelings and sensations which overpowers you and drains you completely.
We don’t want that to happen to you. Emotions are meant to be expressed. And if not in speech, then surely in writing; Writing’s a sure shot way to release all your frustrations, all the insecurities, doubts and anger that has accumulated in your mind over the course of the day. It makes you a tad bit happier. You feel peaceful.
We want you to have that.
We are a fledgling society; we need all the help we can get. Over the course of our brief existence, we’ve published two e-magazines, both of which have been well received. We aim to create an atmosphere conducive to creativity and originality.
In the coming days, we have a lot of exciting events lined up for you. You’re going to get plenty of opportunities to indulge the writer in you.
We hope you have been motivated enough to join us! We are waiting for you.
