London Lit Lab Post-MA Sessions: Mondays and Thursdays (Online)
Mon 11 Oct 2021 to Thu 12 May 2022
Are you reaching the end of a creative writing MA, or have you completed one in the last 3-5 years? Would you like some help getting your manuscript finished and taking the next steps towards publication? If you want regular feedback, and a group of writers to discuss good writing with every month, our monthly workshops are for you. Choose from Monday evenings with Zoe Gilbert or Thursday evenings with Lily Dunn.

Getting through the final stretch on your manuscript can be tough when seminars end and support from university tutors is no longer available. We know this is a common difficulty for creative writers coming out of MA courses, and we want to help you keep up your writing momentum, with the aim of finding a home for your finished book.

For the last five years, we have hosted monthly workshops from October to May to do just that. This year, these Post-MA Sessions are available online via Zoom. Whether you are writing short stories, memoir or a novel, including genre or YA fiction, you are welcome to join one of these groups.

Course outline
• Eight monthly workshop sessions to discuss work-in-progress
• Three opportunities to receive feedback on your work (up to 5,000 words per submission)
• Optional one-to-one support or critical feedback, at an extra cost
• An online writing community, lasting beyond the end of the course

Course cost: £290

Course dates:
The Monday evening sessions with Zoe Gilbert will take place via Zoom, 7-9pm on the 2nd Monday of the month (with the exception of February’s meeting, which will be on the 1st Monday), from 11th October 2021 – 9th May 2022.
