Write On, Bristol!

Write On, Bristol! is a creative writing group run by Bristol Libraries for new and experienced writers

About this event

Join Bristol Libraries for “Write On, Bristol!”

A creative writing group, run by library staff, that gives you the time and the space to develop your creative practice. We welcome writers of all backgrounds and experiences to come and join us for gentle prompts, encouragement and support from your fellow writers. Participants need to bring pen, paper or something to write with or on and will not be required to share their work unless they wish to.

Closed captioning is available for this event and we do require participants to have their video turned on throughout the session unless there are technical difficulties

What to expect

This is a Zoom meeting, of usually about 8 people, facilitated by 2 library staff. We will provide you with a series of 4 journaling prompts (‘freewrite’; 2 written prompts; 1 image) with 5-20 minutes to write your response to each, depending on the prompt. Between each prompt, there will be opportunity for conversation, to talk with each other about your writing and the topic.

The format is an interactive group, not a webinar. Talking is optional, but we do ask that you have your cameras on if possible, or that you let us know if not (e.g. via the chat function), just to ensure we’re all roughly on the same page. We encourage a safe, supportive space, and expect you to share that aim. Prompts are provided by library staff, with the aim of sparking your creativity; suggestions for prompts are welcome.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
