COVID-19 announcement

Meeting structure for 2022

With the ongoing issues of Covid-19 affecting social gatherings, the existing meeting structure will remain in place. Each meeting, for the foreseeable future, will be a blend of Zoom meetings and e-mail. Members can either join the Zoom meeting or send their stories/poems to the Secretary, who will then forward these to the members of the writers’ circle for feedback.
