The English Literary Society of Hindu College will be organizing its annual creative writing competition, Flare, from February 1 this year. Started under the aegis of Dr. Lalita Subbu, Flare is one of the most eagerly awaited competitions in Delhi University. The competition is open to all. A maximum of two poems and one short story will be accepted from each participant. The entry fee for short story is Rs 50 and for poems is Rs 25 per poem. Entries will be accepted over a one month period, that is, from the 1st of February to the 1st of March, following which a magazine consisting of the entries received will be published. The best thing about Flare is that it Imbibes participation from one and all and is not restricted to the English literary circuit, or Hindu college or even Delhi University. Dr Subbu always encouraged college students to explore their talents. This is just one of her ways of doing it. The English Department dept is extremely proud of flare and eager to keep up tradition. Participants are required to send in their entries to [email protected] and are also required to submit a hard copy to the organizers.
