ABOUT THE JOUST


The Joust is the Literary Festival of Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, Sector 62, Noida organised by Parola-The Literary Hub. Since its inception in 2015, it has earned a name for itself in the Literary Circuit of Delhi NCR. Referring to the medieval sport of lancing, the word 'Joust' signifies the verbal battle that takes place in the various events organised during the Literary Festival.

A one-of-a-kind platform for each one of us to discover our potential and showcase our opinions by indulging in activities such as debate, poetry, creative writing as well as MUNs. Stimulating the young minds to think beyond the norm, The Joust is a platform for students to connect with issues that concern the real world and affect the society they're a part of. It helps them find their potential and skills on how to go about discussing these issues, writing about them and coming up with feasible solutions to these real world problems

Now in it's 4th edition, The Joust is sure to surpass its past editions and leave its mark as one of the best literary extravaganza held so far.
