Write & Shine (Virtual)

Start your day with a burst of creativity!

Join Write & Shine live from The London Library Reading Room for a 90-minute virtual writing workshop called 'Voice'. This session will take the work of Muriel Spark as inspiration for writing. 

This is the final session in a series of three virtual writing workshops celebrating the women of The London Library. Muriel Spark joined the library in 1962, a year before the publication of her novella The Girl of Slender Means.

Writer Gemma Seltzer will guide the group through a range of creative prompts on crafting dialogue and creating memorable characters. The session will also consider the distinct, comic writing style Muriel Spark, and the immediacy of her authorial voice. 

Research shows we’re more creative in the morning. When we wake, we’re incredibly sensitive to the sights & sounds of our environment. It’s the best time to think, dream & imagine. Writing early captures all kinds of ideas before your inner critic rears its head.

In Write & Shine workshops, you won’t be expected to share your writing, which offers great freedom and encourages all kinds of unexpected ideas to emerge.

Login at 7.30am for 7.45am start. You will be sent a Zoom link a few days before the workshop (if you do not receive it, please check your junk file or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
