Cambridge & Oxford Summer School Essay Competition
We are the first university-wide creative writing society in Cambridge for both poetry and prose. Our goal is to provide an active, dedicated platform where students can pursue a passion for literature in a collaborative and inclusive environment. We host speaker events, student sharing groups, workshops, open-mics, socials, collaborations and more. We wish to help connect the existing creative community, as well as create more spaces for readers and writers to come together.
The competition asks candidates to write a 2, word essay on their chosen question from the year's selected topic. It is, in fact, two parallel competitions - one for current New College students, and one for Year 12 students at one of our Step Up partner schools. The Competition was open to Year 12 students from one of our Step Up partner schools, with a concurrent competition open to New College students. However, evidence suggests that the two are far more nuanced than societal macrostructures would have one believe.
