This week Jessica Norrie takes us through her weekend writing course with the London Lit Lab.. two days in two different prestigious locations, both of which offered not only the right atmosphere for serious discussion and writing, but prompts that sprung from their various nooks and crannies. A place to become unstuck perhaps from a WIP which is being uncooperative, or to discover a new dimension to a character. Definitely worth considering and I suggest you head over and find out more about this short but productive writing experience. #recommended
I’d written my Work In Progress into a dark, locked cellar. It was time for something to stimulate and inspire. My budget precludes a long writing course, and I don’t like online learning. But since 2014 I’d had positive experiences at a Guardian Masterclass with William Ryan, a summer workshop with Marina Warner, and a Spread the Word mentoring session. So I booked “Building Stories” with London Lit Lab. The course aimed to “use the experience of our public and private spaces to inspire evocative fiction.” At the very least I’d have the privilege of working in two of London’s most impressive buildings. At best I’d start writing my way back upstairs.
