"Lit in the Time of Corona"
POST UPDATE: PLEASE DO NOT COME TO OUR MEETING ON SUNDAY 3/15, BUT TUNE IN TO OUR LIVE STREAM AT 1PM HERE ON THE FACEBOOK EVENT.
Many are asking if our meeting is canceled. The answer is NO, but we hope it will be a small group. We all need to work together to create “community immunity” against this virus, but we also recognize the importance of being together as we can, and doing our work. Books are everyone’s best friend in “self-isolation,” and great writing happens in isolation as well. To this end, we are still having all THREE of our events this busy weekend, with a few cautions and changes.
On Saturday, 3/14, our Wolf Pack WAG Write-In at The Local in Alameda with To Live and Write in Alameda and 100K Trees for Humanity will be “body optional.” Join us at the café, or stay where you are to write. Check in on our FaceBook event when you “arrive” (open your laptop at 2pm) and click the posted link for an information & inspiration document. You can work on whatever you like with us, with a focus on solving the climate crisis.
On Sunday, 3/15, our Panel on Small Press Editors will be recorded for YouTube and live-streamed on our Facebook Page. Our Marketing Success Group will meet online in our CWC Marketing Support Group. And we’ll change the time of our afternoon craft workshop, Journalology with Terry Tierney, to 3-5pm (instead of 4-6.)
At the meeting (which we expect to be well under 20 people), we’ll all keep space between ourselves, keep our hands clean, and try to only touch our own stuff. If you have any concerns or are feeling at all unwell, please stay home and take care of yourself!
Now more than ever…
