Student Organizations

5C Writers’ Collective

5C Writers’ Collective seeks to bring individuals interested in creative writing of any form together into a network group where each person can find honest feedback and, hopefully, inspiration for their current projects. We aim to provide an intimate and safe space for creative expression of all levels as well as feedback and critique without the pressures of meeting deadlines or publication. 5C Writers’ Collective meets every week to write, discuss current projects, and share ideas for future projects. We welcome writers and aspiring writers of all experiences and genres. We also collaborate with other organizations on campus to host open mic nights, poetry slams, and workshops led by local authors.
