Celebrate the year with us

It’s that time again – time to save a spot in your calendar for our annual joyful gathering…

It’s been quite a year for 26. Despite the ups and downs of the COVID situation, we have managed to keep a stream of activities going for members. And you have responded with some amazing writing in projects as varied as 26 Shields, Habitats, Pledges and the Bloomsbury Festival. A very international year too, involving writers around the world in Dear 26 and, of course, our thriving New Zealand chapter.

So let’s celebrate together. On 16 December at 6pm (UK time), join us for a Zoom gathering at which we’ll open the windows of the 26 Advent Calendar. In a session hosted by Martin Clarkson, we’ll have a quick-fire session of readings, interviews, film clips and chats. Nothing too formal, just a chance to get together before the festive period, say hello to friends and be amazed by how much has happened.

It’ll be fun – but only if you bring yourself along, perhaps clutching a bottle of your favourite tipple. Then we can raise our glasses to present friends, celebrate the year and look forward to the next one. Keep the date safe: 16 December, 18:00 (UK time), on Zoom. We’ll send out the Zoom invite closer to the time but you can register in advance here:
