The London Library Emerging Writers Programme

Applications for the 2020-2021 Programme are now open. The London Library is proud to announce the second year of the Emerging Writers Programme, a unique opportunity which offers writers, in all genres, one year’s free membership of The London Library.

Geared towards supporting writers at the start of their careers, the Programme includes writing development masterclasses, literary networking opportunities, peer support and guidance in use of the Library’s resources. With its rich cultural heritage, extensive open access book collection, dedicated writing spaces and its diverse community of established writers, the benefits of Library membership are invaluable

The London Library Emerging Writers Programme is open to anyone who is committed to pursuing a career in writing (for publication or performance) and wants to develop their practice. Applicants should be working, or planning to work, on a specific project, with the aim of publication or production, and have a clear idea of how they might use the Library’s resources to achieve that aim.

Applicants will be selected anonymously by a panel of judges including London Library Trustee and novelist Isabelle Dupuy (chair); author and broadcaster Bidisha; writer and translator Daniel Hahn; and agents from A M Heath.
