Hobart Festival of Women Writers Virtual Flash Readings
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 assisted by Amber Gray. These videos were aired via Zoom on Saturday, September 12th and 13th, 2020.
