Helen’s London Library
Squad grad Helen Bowell is one of this year’s London Library Emerging Writers. Now in its inaugural year, the programme includes writing development masterclasses, literary networking opportunities, peer support and guidance in use of the Library’s resources.
Helen will have free membership to the private library for the next year, along with 37 other talented writers accepted onto the programme. Of the 38 writers selected, 6 are poets, 5 write for screen or stage, 5 are planning non-fiction books and the rest are planning to write fiction. 13 of the writers are under 28.
Philip Marshall, Director of The London Library, comments: “We are thrilled to have had such an enthusiastic response to our inaugural Emerging Writers Programme and to be able to engage with such a talented and diverse group of participants in the early part of their writing careers. For nearly 180 years, the Library has been a great source of inspiration and support to writers of all different kinds and we look forward to seeing how this wonderful group of new writers will use the Programme to develop their respective projects.”
