One for the (London-based) writers among you.
The London Writers Club is a new monthly event put on by a couple of agents, with the intention of allowing writers (both working and prospective) to network. A friend of mine put me onto it a few weeks ago. Like I said, it’s fairly new (I believe that the event I attended was its third), but the event I went to was very professionally put on and had drawn quite a crowd. It does cost to get in, but the talk we had (by author Matt Whyman) was very good, and I had some really interesting chats with some of the other attendees.
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend the next event as I’m busy that evening, but I definitely intend to go to future events. However, they’ve got the details up on their website so I thought I’d put them up here:
London Writers’ Club‘An inspiring networking club for writers run by publishing professionals, Kirsty Mclachlan and Jacqueline Burns.’
