Due to the ongoing lockdown and uncertainty with respect to what measures will remain in place once the lockdown ends, we have taken the decision to keep the Commonword office closed until September.

With respect to our programme:

  • All events are postponed until at least September.
  • All face to face workshops are cancelled until further notice – we are, however, continuing our workshops online.
  • The rest of our work, including the Archive Project, Mentoring, and Free Read Scheme are continuing, adapted as required.

In the meantime, should you need to contact us, please do so via our social media, or email:


Take care and look after each other.
