What is the Virtual Writers' Lab?
The Writers' Lab is a protected writing space, similar to a 'Writing Boot Camp' or 'Shut up and write!' sessions, but with expert support available when you need it. It is held on Zoom, so that you can see and be seen in gallery view, holding you accountable to your time writing. We stop you for regular 5-minute breaks, with a slightly longer one in the middle.
For two or three hours every week you can simply 'shut up and write' in the company of other writers. The Writers' Lab is not a course. You can join in at any time between 9.30 and 12.30 on Tuesday and Friday mornings. To participate, you need to enrol in the Virtual Writers' Lab.
If you need support while you write, a member of the English Unit will be in the room all morning quietly working alongside you (virtually). If you have any questions, you can use the private chat function to communicate with him/her.
Please note that for lengthier discussions you can book an Individual Consultation.
The Virtual Writers' Lab begins again on 13 October.
