The ELS (English Literature Society) is a student-run organization at Carleton University that aims to be a resource for all things literary, on and off campus. Our mission is to facilitate an engaging and collaborative community for students with a passion for reading and writing, as well as open the door for anyone interested in getting involved in Ottawa’s literary world. By joining ELS, you will be able to actively participate in our club activities, stay updated on local literary events, improve your writing in informal workshop settings, and more!
