The foundation of LUMS Literary Society is built on three principals:
LLS is not just a society working for promotion of literature in LUMS, but also a family that stays together during all ups and downs. Here we celebrate each other’s joys and share each other’s worries. It is a place where you are recognized based your talent and dedication. Here we tend to create a platform that provides everyone with equal opportunities to express ideas and make an impact.
Shaikh Abdul Gaffar,
President | LLS
LUMS Literary Society stands firm on the foundation to promote and restore the lost remnants of literary essence in their purest form, and to convey them to the interested masses. With the vision to revive the art of reading with passion, the society aims:
• To encourage creativity through imagination
• To augment the students' writing and linguistic skills
• To scrutinize the delicate tinges of various facets of literature
LUMS Literary Society intends to support an appreciation of reading, involvement in engaging discussions, thoughtful considerations of literature and creative writing, as activities which have valuable effects on the society. LLS is devoted to promoting effective communication skills among the students; the society is poised to enable the abilities with cutting edges to develop and polish their literary skills. The society is ambitious to inspire the students to develop a taste for literature and at the same time realize the direction of expanding their horizon of spoken and written languages. The society's involved schema includes a variety of activities aimed at fostering up the confidence and grooming the aptitudes of students in confronting various interactive challenges and competitions.
Additionally, overlooking the literary aspect, the society intends to provide a common ground to form new acquaintances, foster confidence, exchange views, and to encourage a friendly banter to endorse the beauty of different ideas.
LUMS Literary society is an independent professional society, open to scholars, literature admirers, teachers and students around the country. It subsists predominantly to expedite the attempts of a nationwide audience to encourage the efforts of Pakistani writers and artists, budding and professionals alike. The society welcomes the contribution of all who produce content for the study and hopes for productive collaboration between scholars, artists and literary enthusiasts. The LLS as a student run society upholds the primacy of the Pakistani peoples in shaping the future of Pakistani literature and actively supports the Pakistani talent in their quest for achieving literary hallmarks.
