A Happy New Year to you. Farewell to 2020, thank goodness. Welcome 2021– it will be brighter. We hope you are all well and safe in these strange times.

We had hoped to host a live festival in 2021, but following the progress of the distribution and injections of the vaccines, it seems impossible to attain herd immunity by May. We do not wish to put anyone in jeopardy health-wise. Fear not! We will have the WOTL festival as planned, but it will be a virtual version. We are working now to make sure that everything is in place for your virtual attendance. It almost sounds like Star Trek’s ‘beam me up Scottie!’ Our presenters are also ready to go. Their profiles are on the website so you can refresh your memory at leisure.

There are several silver linings to a virtual festival. 1: It will be somewhat cheaper as we do not have the expenses of the hotel, the conference centre or meals. 2: You can wear your bunny slippers if you want to – nobody will know! 3: It will be very low cal as no meals will be included (except what you make yourselves). We could show tantalizing photos of fab food though, but that would be mean! 4:You won’t have to travel to get here, thus saving on gas or air fares 

 We plan to send you updates once a month. However, if you have any questions, please contact us at We will be happy to answer you ASAP.

The Askew’s Writing Contest will also take place and details are posted at

Take care of yourselves. ‘See’ you soon.
