Not sure what you mean by "writable LV" – LVM snapshots are already writable. If you want an wholly independent LV – perhaps you could just copy the snapshot to a new LV.
lvconvert --merge merges a snapshot back into the origin, for when you only want the snapshot's contents and not the origin's anymore.
(Hypothetically, at least. I've not yet tried it myself.)
