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.
There’s a back-to-school vibe in the air as we move into September. As such, this month’s edition of The Writing Salon is going to unpick the back-to-school genre. We’ll look at a range of stories from page, stage, and screen and we’ll dive into the tropes that writers exploit when telling these stories. Join host Mark Heywood, as we kick off the Autumn term on Tuesday September 7th at 7pm. As we’ll be based in the dining room you’ll be able to order food and drink during the session. To get us back into the habit of writing there will also be a short practical element to the session. Grab your pencil cases and we’ll see you there.
The session starts at 7pm but please feel free to arrive in the Dining Room at any time from 6pm to order a bite to eat and grab a drink before we begin.
