Online Event

Write and Shine (Online)

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 on the theme of ‘pencils.’ You'll have exclusive access to London Library archive material and will explore the wonderful world of marginalia.

Writer Gemma Seltzer will guide the group through a range of inspiring exercises to prompt new creative writing. Together, we'll consider scribbles in book margins, doodles on pamphlets, writing tools, pencils in poetry and more!

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.
