London is an extraordinary city, in which history, culture, and desire collide. It is a city of stories like no other, and has inspired brilliant writing for hundreds of years. Now it is your turn to join the conversation. This module aims to enable you to situate your own writing about London in relation to key texts that have helped shape the way we think about and experience London. Each week we will address a specific topic, with key works of fiction at the centre of our discussion.
