At this difficult time we hope everyone in our community is staying safe and well and we send everyone our very best wishes.
As a team we have been meeting (online) to decide what our best response should be to the crisis. There has been a great deal of online activity from arts organisations all over the country and it has been encouraging and also somewhat overwhelming to see the speed and range of reactions.
As a team, we have decided to take things more slowly and not to rush to action. We have made a plan and we now have a series of projects underway. When these are ready, they will be released with full details about how to participate.
So far, we have one online project, Writers United. This is a Facebook group that Carolyn is managing. Each week Carolyn sets a challenge and writers are invited to post their writing to receive feedback from other writers. It is a very positive space and has produced some lovely work from people. Please send a private message to the Facebook Sun and Moon page if you’d like to be added to Writers United: https://www.facebook.com/sunmoonfestgy/
