The Writing Salon is unlike any other event for writers. It seeks to draw inspiration from unlikely places as it dissects genre and narrative, explores fiction and non-fiction, and dives into all forms of storytelling. Through a mixture of video, audio, theory, practical exercises, interviews with guests, and a very social and engaged membership it will make you feel energised about your writing. Everyone is welcome, as well as all writing genres and formats. Some members have no previous writing experience – others write regularly for stage, page and screen. Whatever your level, you’ll get a warm welcome.
Join host Mark Heywood for the April edition of The Writing Salon. On Tuesday April 19th at 7pm we’ll be looking at the use of Easter Eggs in storytelling – and no, we don’t mean chocolate. Easter Eggs are common in games, but there are some wonderful examples in stories from stage, page, and screen. Whether these are secret messages or inside jokes, when used well, Easter Eggs have the power to lift the experience of a reader or audience. When used clumsily, they can jolt the reader or audience out of your story. In the session we’ll look at some examples of how to use Easter Eggs properly.
There will be a short practical element to the session. Grab your pencil cases and we’ll see you there. You’ll also be able to buy copies of our inaugural anthology “Lips on Unfamiliar Skin.”
The session starts at 7pm but please feel free to book a table at the Club from 6pm to enjoy a bite to eat, or arrive a little early in order grab a drink before we begin (you can also book a table for 8.30/9pm to have your supper afterwards!)
