Please join us for our annual review and celebration (via Zoom) of your 2021 writing year. Here, we can share our writing challenges, achievements and interests arising from yet another strange pandemic year. We can also begin to anticipate our respective writing projects and enthusiasms for 2022.
Our ZOOM process: Limitless numbers can join us via Zoom. Experience suggests that 2 hours (with a break) is about the limit of optimum online participation. So we'll convene from 1.30-3.30 pm, and online participants can leave at any time that they wish (it's important that we all at least start together). We have the space booked until 4.30 pm, so if there's still energy after 3.30 pm, anyone who wishes can carry on for up to another hour.
As a community of writing (and reading) practice, our review includes (optionally) sharing your favourite Words of the Year (from this Collins Dictionary, or from your own, list) that for you epitomise a significant or shifting ethos, mood, or development in 2021. In any case, please bring along some favourite writing (your own or someone else's) to share in pairs or small groups in a 'Private Passions' session. You might bring an artefact, a recording, an account of an experience - anything! We'll also be looking forward to our 2022 writing year.
As a seasonal gift, I’m also embedding a short quiz* which might help you to take stock, whether or not you are able to join us on 17 December.
I'll also be reporting on ideas and suggestions that we've received for AWG sessions and themes about AMED's future in 2022 and beyond - and inviting your comments and suggestions.
This typically open and informal gathering is a wonderful opportunity to meet old and new friends who are interested in writing, reading, listening, conversations, diversity, solidarity and conviviality in any form. Everyone is welcome, so please feel free to spread the word.
Cost: In the interests of equity, the participation fee will be £10. This money will go towards the cost of admin and equipment hire. Payable via this link.
RSVP: If you would like to join us, please reply by 12 noon on Thursday 16 December (earlier if possible), and I will send you the Zoom link.
Seasonal greetings. Bob firstname.lastname@example.org
