London Writers Network
TikTok for Writers

Join us for an evening of talks on all things TikTok with Priyanka Moorjani and Anam Iqbal.

TikTok is now one of the largest social networks with over 1 billion active users each month. In this event, two established BookTokers will share their insights into how they develop content for the app and how you could make the most of it as a reader and a writer. Anam Iqbal is the author of The Exes, a YA romance novel, and has over 44,000 followers on TikTok. Priyanka Moorjani is a prize-winning poet and content creator active on both BookTok and BookTube. She also has a background in publishing.

Each writer will give a short talk about their experience of using TikTok and their advice to writers starting out on the platform. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions and network over light refreshments.


The Red Room is located on the ground floor of The Albany and is fully accessible for wheelchair users. There are Changing Place and disabled toilet facilities. For full access information please visit:
