Our 3 clubs take place on Tuesdays, each club is alternated every three weeks. Coming to one session does not mean you need to come every time! There’s no obligation whatsoever. You can also come just once to see how you like it.

Weird Book Club

Have you ever read a text that made you feel unsettled? Grossed out? Uneasy? Would you like to? Then the Weird Book Club is the right place for you. Join us to discuss and discover strange, unsettling literature, and feel free to bring your own texts. You can also bring song lyrics, paintings, etc. No prerequisites are needed, no reading ahead is necessary. The Weird Book Club welcomes everybody who wants to share and talk about strange, unsettling literature in an informal environment, regardless of your level of English.

Join us on Tuesdays at 18:15, the 27th of September, 18th of October, 15th of November, and 6th of December, at the Vortex kitchen.

Food + Poetry

Brought to you by the students of the English department of UNIL, this is a club for listening to and discussing poetry, alongside some tasty snacks! If you like sharing or hearing poetry, or just snacks, the Food + Poetry club is just the thing for you!

We meet up to read poetry linked to the theme of the meeting, and basically have a great time!

Join us on Tuesdays at 18:15, the 4th and 25th of October, the 22nd of November and the 13th of December at the Vortex kitchen, except on the 4/10, which takes place at ANT 3148.

Creative Writing Club

Do you enjoy writing short stories, novels, flash fiction, plays, poems or anything? Do you enjoy reading and discussing them? Do you enjoy giving feedback, finding new ideas and being in a creative environment? Then join the Creative Writing Club! We meet on Tuesdays every three weeks, and write according to prompts the we, the organisers will come up with.

The idea of the Creative Writing Club first emerged in the cold essay/exam season of January 2015. Faculty of Arts, English Department: essays, mémoires, theses, articles… We are all writers in a way. So why not also encourage creative writing? Why not have a space dedicated to our imagination and its wildest creations?

The Creative Writing Club is a place where ideas are raised, where advice and tips are exchanged, always in a friendly and constructive atmosphere. Writers of all horizons, we might have different opinions about writing, and diverse methods to come up with a story, but we all love shaping worlds and characters with words. And thus, meetings are filled with exchange, debates, laughter, and most important: writing!

Join us on Tuesdays at 18:15, the 11th of October, 1st and 29th of November, and the 20th of December, at ANT 3128

Don’t hesitate to send us an email if you have questions (find it in the Contact page) or send us a DM to our instagram or on our Facebook page.


Do you want to practice speaking English, informally, without any pressure at all? Join us every Thursday at lunch (11:45-14:15)! SCOPE members will be at Anthropole’s cafeteria to chat with anyone who wants to! Even if you’re not a student of English, you are absolutely welcome, as long as you want to talk in a friendly way. You’ll find us under a SCOPE sign and a Chat’n’Chew poster.
