Overview of Society - We are an Academic discussion group based on the coffeehouses of the 18th Century, where people would meet and discuss recent news and interesting topics. As such, we talk about a range of topics over a coffee (or a pint!), including current aspects of the BA English Literature course, recent events and controversial topics. We also offer support for academic content creation, such as guides to critical theories. This year we will also be having a creative takeover once a month, where the group will have a go at writing exercises intended to get their creativity flowing! This will be great for Creative Writing students, as well as those who want to give creative writing a try. Anyone with an interest in Literature is welcome.
Due to Covid-19 Restrictions, Coffeehouse will be meeting exclusively online for our weekly meetings this semester. Please ensure you have registered your Plymouth Zoom account so you can join us!
Our meetings will be held over Zoom on Wednesdays from 14:30 - 15:30, starting 30th September with our give-it-a-go sessions. Keep an eye on this page, as well as our social media as to how/when we’ll be conducting other socials this year.
