Tuesday 15 February, 2022

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 February edition of The Writing Salon. On Tuesday February 15th at 7pm we’ll be kicking off a brand new lunar cycle by taking a look at what the Year of the Tiger has in store.  We’ll examine the narrative of the zodiac. – nonsensical hokum or the basis of all character, destiny, and chance?  We’ll take a look at how novelists and filmmakers have used both Western and Eastern Zodiacs in their stories.  Is Sherlock Holmes a Virgo, Dorian Gray a Taurus – or is all this just a load of clickbait?  Let’s dive in and find out.


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 and grab a drink before we begin – alternatively book a table for 8.30/9pm to have your supper afterwards! Email reception@unionclub.co.uk to book.
