COVID-19 announcement

Meeting structure for 2020

With the ongoing issues of Covid-19 affecting social gatherings, as of September 2020, we will be altering the meeting structure. On the first Tuesday of the month, meetings will take the form of members e-mailing each other with their stories/poems etc and gaining feedback in this way. On the third Tuesday of each month, we will meet via Zoom.

An example of the October meetings is as follows:

  • 6th October – members e-mail their pieces to one another
  • 20th October – the writers’ circle will meet via Zoom with the appropriate links to be sent to members on the day

Further details are posted against the meeting dates from October onwards:
