After having to cancel our planned 3-week WRITE Festival in June 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we worked hard to bring a 1 week digital version of the Festival later in the year.
WRITE Festival Online ran from 18-23 October 2020. As always, the festival celebrated the written word in all its forms and had something for everyone from children, to adults, to aspiring writers.
Events included writing workshops, an author talk, performances and crafty sessions for all to enjoy from the comfort (and safety) of their own home. The Festival used various platforms including Zoom and YouTube to deliver the programme direct to its audience.
WRITE Festival Online was delivered in partnership with South Tyneside Libraries and supported by Arts Council England.
