Tuesday 21 June, 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 June edition of The Writing Salon. On Tuesday June 21st at 7pm we’ll be looking at what writers can learn from the longest day of the year – the summer solstice.  From fairy tales and folklore to rituals and traditions, “midsummer” has long inspired writers and filmmakers.  But why, when some see celebration and joy, do others see horror and human sacrifice? We’ll look at a range of stories which have used summer as their inspiration as ever 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.”
