RVS Virtual Village Hall

Since April 2020, I’ve been creating online writing workshops for the Royal Voluntary Service. These are shared on the RVS Virtual Village Hall Facebook page which offers free daily leisure activities for people who are having to isolate at home.

So far I’ve led eight workshops for the RVS, on a broad range of topics that touch on the experiences of us all. Though the initial workshops were pre-recorded, I now run them as hour-long Facebook Live sessions, which allows me to write along with everyone and read out comments posted by those joining in.
