Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Commonword office will be closed until further notice.

With respect to our programme:

  • All events are postponed until at least the end of June.
  • All face to face workshops are cancelled – we are, however, exploring options for continuing these online.
  • The rest of our work, including the Archive Project, Mentoring, and Publishing, will continue as normal.

We will provide more information on how you can participate in our programme digitally in the next couple of weeks. 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.
