FoW York 2022. We're back!


After a two-year break, the Jericho Writers Festival of Writing was back and it was bigger and better than ever before. While it was initially overwhelming to be with 400 people in one place, after only interacting online for so long, the weekend was a huge success. I'll let the photos tell the story. Apologies for the non-chronological order and the lack of tags.
