Tuesday 12 October, 2021

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, as we kick off the final quarter of 2021 on Tuesday October 12th at 7pm.  October 12th is a date rich with history. It was on this day in 1984 that an assassination attempt took place at the Grand Brighton Hotel. In this session we’ll look at the narrative of grand hotels – locations that drip with story.  The Europa Hotel in Belfast, the Commodore in Beirut, the Palace Continental in Saigon. And possibly the most infamous of them all.  The Holiday Inn in Sarajevo.

There will also be a short practical element to the session.  Grab your pencil cases and we’ll see you there.

RSVP to catherine@unionclub.co.uk

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.
