Hart House Literary and Library Committee

The Hart House Literary and Library Committee provides opportunities to explore the various facets of the literary arts to students on all three U of T campuses. The Committee houses numerous subcommittees that each covers an area of the literary world: our Writers Co-op which meets weekly (dates TBD) for writers of poetry and prose. The Facilities subcommittee maintains the Hart House Library and is responsible for providing more opportunities for students to learn about libraries and the opportunities available.

The Literary and Library Committee also publishes the Hart House Review, an annual literary and art journal which launches every year in April. We also coordinate the poetry and short story contests whose winners are then published in the Review. This year, in conjunction with the Hart House Review we will be hosting a monthly reading series featuring two writers with an opportunity for students to share their writing afterwards. Our programming this year is dedicated to several streams, one of them being professional development with panels providing information on publishing and jobs in related fields.

The committee helps to bring positive attention to Hart House both on campus and throughout the city with the events it hosts and its contributions to the greater Toronto community.
