Open readings (online) in partnership with the Barbican Library.

Join us in a friendly atmosphere for a chance to read out your written work – from your short stories to part of your novel, or any fictional/non-fictional work you would like to share. Each reading will be followed by constructive feedback and thoughts from fellow attendees.

  • This session is an excellent opportunity to gauge feedback on your work and learn where you can improve.
  • Each reading will have a time limit of up to 10 minutes max in length. (There will be a subtle alarm sound at the end of 10 mins to help keep the session moving forward in good time).
  • There will also be the option to share your writing on the screen so people can read along to it.
  • For the attendees who wish to read their work, please respond to my comment on this event so I can plan. If you don’t comment, just attend and volunteer if we have time. We will try and accommodate as many readings as possible.

If you wish, please also feel free to just come along to listen and provide constructive feedback.
