A Literary Magazine

New Square is the official publication of the Sancho Panza Literary Society, an independent society of ideas in residence each summer at the hauntingly beautiful and historic Trinity College Dublin.  Our Dublin program features ten days of intensive writer’s workshop and literary debate at Trinity, and is augmented by trips to Howth and the Irish Sea, plays at the Abbey, Gate, and Gaeity Theatres, visits to the Dublin Writer’s Museum, The National Art Gallery, and the Guinness Storehouse (all within walking distance from campus), and a full day excursion to the west of Ireland to visit Galway and the Cliffs of Moher.  The name New Square is derived from the section of campus where our participants reside during the workshop.
