London Writers’ Salon to host 24-hour writing sprint

The London Writers’ Salon (LWS) has announced its plan to bring together 10,000 writers from around the globe in a 24-hour Writing Sprint this Spring, per This free event, slated to kick off on April 12th at 8 pm UK time, promises to be a marathon celebration of writing prowess, attracting participants from diverse time zones and backgrounds.

The Writing Sprint aims to provide a dedicated space for writers to make substantial progress on their projects, offering a structured yet flexible environment. Writers can join the sprint at any point during the 24 hours, from 8 pm UK time on April 12th to the same time on April 13th, catering to different schedules and time commitments.

One of the key features of the event is the inclusion of “motivational moments” throughout the sprint. These moments are designed to inspire and energize participants, mirroring the successful format of LWS’s daily Writers’ Hour creative sessions. This initiative not only encourages productivity but also fosters a sense of community and support among writers, crucial in the often solitary journey of writing.

Moreover, attendees will have access to valuable resources and links to businesses and professionals who can provide assistance and guidance in their writing endeavors. This aspect reflects LWS’s commitment to nurturing writers beyond just the sprint, fostering long-term growth and success in the writing community.

The event has garnered support from prominent sponsors such as Gotham Writers, Scrivener, and the Faber Academy, highlighting the industry’s recognition of the importance of such initiatives in promoting literary excellence. Other sponsors include Arvon, Writers & Artists (Bloomsbury), and 64 Million Artists, among others, showcasing a united effort to empower and uplift writers worldwide.

The LWS 24-hour writing sprint is poised to be a landmark event in the writing community, sparking creativity, camaraderie and a renewed passion for storytelling. Writers eager to participate can sign up online and mark their calendars for this transformative writing experience.
