Update: Postponed events due to Covid 19

Lovely fellow WOW-ers: in the light of everything that’s happening, we’re sure you won’t be surprised that we’re cancelling our April and May Women Of Words events. These were due to take place on Wednesday 1st April and Wednesday 6th May.

Depending on the situation, we may well need to cancel our June event. We’ll make a decision by the middle of May at the latest.

Lots of love and good thoughts to you and your loved ones. We’re especially thinking of those of you who are ill, or who have loved ones who are ill. We all wish you a swift recovery.

This too shall pass. We’ll look forward to giving our planned April and May guests, Hannah and Chloe a fantastic Women Of Words welcome later in our calendar. Stay well and safe in the meantime.

We’ll see you on the other side xx
