Write & 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 ‘serendipity’. We'll have exclusive access to London Library materials and explore the library’s unique cataloguing system which allows for kinds of chance encounters.

Writer Gemma Seltzer will guide the group through a range of inspiring exercises to prompt new creative writing. Together, we’ll consider coincidence, luck and happy accidents in our own writing, as well as in the work of other authors, poets and artists.

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.

This is taking place online via Zoom, you will be sent a link in advance.
