@TabitaSurge: It's ma's funeral tomorrow. She was an undiagnosed autistic woman: I'm sharing my eulogy as a love letter to autistic parents 'When I met with the celebrant to start preparing for this funeral, he asked what mum was like. What were her hobbies and interests? Gardening, perhaps?'

To creative writing students:

As my forthcoming library workshops have been postponed indefinitely, I’ve begun recording them for you instead. Take a listen to my first sessions are below.

Please let me have any comments: topics for future podcasts and anything else that strikes you: JoyRhoadesWorkshops@gmail.com Favour: I need you to tell me everything annoying, no matter how small (or big :))

Above all, try to switch off, write and be well. Look forward to ‘seeing’ you (virtually and especially in person) when this is all over.

All my best wishes,

Joy
