SMC English Club
The purpose of this Associated Students (A.S.) club is to foster a love of literature among passionate students across all majors at Santa Monica College. We collaborate with members to select works from various forms and mediums of literature and discuss their impact. We hope to create a fun and inspiring space for students to connect with each other over their love of literature.
SMC Writers Club
Established in 2001, the SMC Writers Club aims to grow and promote exceptional and creative writing talent at Santa Monica College. Our poets, essayists, journalists and more, are on a journey, some as current students and others as alumni, to evolve the tradition of literature and culture. We hope that our participation as part of this club will create a unique community of talent, mentors, publishers, game changers, visionaries and artists.
This year, the SMC Writers Club presents the Dreams Come True International Writing Competition. The competition includes One Dreams Come True Award in Literature, One Dreams Come True Award in Innovation to recognize an exceptional submission, and up to three Dreams Come True Young Awards which will be presented to three exceptional primary or secondary school student writers. Winning entries will be published by the SMC Writers Club in a book or magazine, and one copy of the publication with the award-winning submissions will be presented to every awardee or published writer. The deadline for submission is Sept. 30th. For more information on submissions, view the Dreams Come True International Writing Competition Guidelines.
