This year’s theme for London Writers’ Week is to provide access to and showcase the best new ideas going on in terms of writing for and using Digital Media in the UK. With the growth of Netflix, Amazon, BBC Three going online and theatre productions use of digital media, we hope the week provides an insight into and advice on some of the best new ideas in the UK.
Just announced: This year’s London Writers’ Week is also a benefit for victims of the Grenfell Tower fire, with 100% of profits from the week going to help victims, supported by The Tabernacle, Notting’s Hill theatre and arts centre at the heart of the community – previous events at The Tabernacle include events with Adele, Lily Allen and others. If you are not able to attend the week in person, you can purchase a Donation ticket and receive email highlights from the week.

London Playwrights Blog: Creative Inspiration 2.0: A Practical Workshop for Playwrights
July 8, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm| £5.00
Never stare at a blank page again! There’s no better way to celebrate London Writers’ Week than by putting your pen to use. This two-hour intensive workshop will get your creative juices flowing and leave you armed with a set of inspirational tools to boost your creativity when writing at home.
In this interactive workshop, London Playwrights’ Blog Co-Founders Kimberley Andrews and A.C. Smith put a digital twist on extensive stash of practical writing exercises they’ve picked up during their lives as workshop participants, playwrights, tutors and workshop leaders. You’ll have the chance to do some spontaneous writing, share your work with other members of the group and gain constructive feedback on your ideas. Stick around in the bar afterwards to celebrate and chat with the workshop leaders and your fellow writers.
Preparation: None, just bring what you need to take notes (paper/pen) – and be prepared to share your work in a group setting.
This event is for you if…
- You’re interested in finding new strategies to create your own work
- You’re curious about the new opportunities the digital world has created
- You want to get practical advice from emerging writers who are successfully self-producing
