CUPPS is the first university-wide literary society at Cambridge, hosting workshops, sharing sessions and speaker events, as well as publishing an annual anthology of student writing.

CUPPS is the first university-wide literary society at Cambridge. The society aims to create an enthusiastic and inclusive community where you can foster your passion for creative writing and literature. We celebrate student writing, no matter your level of experience or your medium of choice!

Our Failed Novelists writers group meet regularly to share their writing and gain valuable feedback from friendly faces, while the UniSlam team competes annually in national slam poetry competitions across the UK. Beyond this, we host regular open mic nights where you can share your own work or simply enjoy the work of others. We also bring in professional writers to share their experiences and tips for nuturing your interest in writing, whatever the form. 

We don't collect membership and are open to all! Sign up to our mailing list or follow our Instagram to hear about upcoming events and feel free to just turn up!
