Learn from top writers, make significant progress on your work, and connect with fellow writers in a fun and informative evening session.

London Writers' Salon is a monthly meetup for writers. Part expert interview, part writing masterclass, part accountability group. Built for writers, by writers.

Each month we bring together writers of all walks of life to help each other make progress on writing projects and writing career goals.

Each Writers' Salon features:

Expert Interviews:​​ An ask-me-anything conversation with top authors, bloggers, screenwriters, journalists, playwrights, travellers, poets, editors, publishers and agents on the artist’s journey and the art of building a successful writing career in the 21st century.

Writing Masterclass:​​ Every session features a mini but mighty masterclass around the theme of the evening. Make significant progress on your work and writing career in the room.

Supportive Community of Fellow Writers: A strong community of likeminded writers to hold you accountable to your writing goals and help you troubleshoot when you get stuck.

Whether you’re at the start of your writing journey or deep into a writing career, kicking off a new book or keeping up a blog – the London Writer's Salon is for you.

February's Theme: Making a Living as a Writer

This month we'll dig into the nuts and bolts of building and sustaining a career as a writer. What it means to be a writer in 2019 is vastly different than it was 100 or even 10 years ago. Is the story of the "starving artist" an unhelpful myth or harsh reality? Is it possible to make a living solely from your writing? How have others done it? What revenue streams exist? Which ones are right for you? How might you diversify your income streams?
