The 8th Annual Hobart Festival of Women Writers was cancelled in April due to Covid-19. We had chosen our 2020 Participating Writers and were looking forward to their readings and workshops, as well as, a special panel discussion on the weekend of September 11, 12 &13th. We were very disappointed at the loss of our in-person Festival. In order to preserve our platform celebrating women authors, we created our first Virtual Flash Readings. Forty writers participated by recording themselves reading their work. The videos were combined into two seamless, beautiful videos by Jessica Vecchione of VECC Videography http://www.veccvideography.net who was assisted by Amber Gray. These videos were aired via Zoom on Saturday, September 12th and Sunday, September 13th, 2020.
