An upcoming event with the Barbican Library

The writers Initiative

Come and join us in a friendly atmosphere for a chance to hear fresh new wrters read out your written work or even read out some of your own writting for valuable feedback.

Writers will read out their work – from short stories to parts of a novel, or any fictional/non-fictional work. Each reading will be followed by constructive feedback and thoughts from fellow attendees.

For the attendees who wish to read their work, please just attend and volunteer at the time. We will try and accommodate as many readings as possible.

This session is an excellent opportunity to hear the writing of others and gauge feedback on your written work.

Each reading will have a time limit of up to 10 minutes max in length. – The readings will take place in the Arts library space.
