Come to the fantastic NYU London Literary Club Reading Night, taking place on Thursday 15th May at 6.30pm in Room 105 of the Academic Centre!

The Literary Club met every Wednesday this semester and has given students the opportunity to workshop their own fiction, poetry, scripts and creative non-fiction in an informal, supportive and creative environment. The Reading Night is an opportunity to recognise our students’ work and hear readings from high profile readers.
