About Literati


Formed by students with a common love for literature, SMU Literati promotes the expression of literature, in written and spoken form, amongst the SMU students. It is a platform for like-minded enthusiasts to express themselves creatively and share their works in a casual setting of mutual respect and open-mindedness.

Through our events, Literati aims to create an exciting and vibrant atmosphere for all the writers, speakers and readers in SMU.

We can we contacted via email at

SMU Literati also regularly collaborates with external organizations with the focus on the creating social impact through the written word. Such as, with our collaborations with Autoimmune diseases Singapore for the exhibition: In Your Shoes. An upcoming collaboration with the cats welfare society to facilitate the adoption drive and advocate for their adoption. Every semester, we hold typewriter workshops where participants will get to create their own poem on the typewriter and wax seal their works.
