The literature and spoken word community for all of campus

WordCo is here to offer UCU students a varied and vibrant platform for our voices. We want everyone to have the opportunity to work on their writing and perform anything they have written. We encourage any form of writing – from classic styles of poetry, to rap, rhyme, song, a train of thought, or your own unique rhythm! We’d also love students to write in any language they choose!
Spoken word poetry can be about anything – from your feelings, ideas and stories, to issues you find important, things you’ve learned and places you’ve visited. There is no limit to what you can perform. Writing and performing works so much better when there is an enthusiastic audience and that gezellig atmosphere!


  • Weekly Wordshops, where you can learn how to write different styles of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and even song lyric writing! Locke B at 18:00 on Tuesdays. 
  • Songwriting in the Sun! Come along to Wilhelminapark with us (and Loïs’ dog Rufus!!) on Sunday April 15th and enjoy a chill afternoon, hopefully in the sun, writing and playing instruments together. Learn how to write songs, have your songs performed by people who can play the instruments you wish you could, or even just watch musicians and writers interact and create together!
