Writing Salon at the Union

Wednesday 4 August, 2021
Free event, 7pm

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.

The Writing Salon anthology “Lips on Unfamiliar Skin” will be published this summer.  It is a collection of short-stories and poems written by members.  Host Mark Heywood is a writer and director, he also hosts the “Behind The Spine” podcast – finding learning opportunities for writers in the most unlikely of places, and he is the creator of the audio drama The End of the Line (powerful stories about how we treat women who don’t have kids) which features Dame Harriet Walter.  The drama is home to brand new writing and new voices – some of whom are members of The Writing Salon.

Join us as the Writing Salon meets for the first time in real life since March 2020!
