London Library Emerging Writers 2019 Launch
The library has always been a haven as well as a source of inspiration to writers over the last 180 years including Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Bram Stoker, Agatha Christie and Virginia Woolf, who are just a few of a long list of illustrious names who have been inspired by the library space.
Although I have been a member of the library since 2013, being selected for the emerging writers programme this year has allowed my creative energy to soar. Already, there are more familiar faces at the library than ever before and the writing spirit within the reading room continues to thrive.
Thank you to all the wonderful library staff who make this place so special and welcoming and to Philip Marshal, Director of the Library for his continued encouragement to all us writers and Claire Berliner for her enthusiasm and support of the Emerging writers Programme.
