We hope that you are all keeping as well as possible during this extended, strange, timeless summer.

Following a busy season celebrating award winners and sharing conversations with writers and readers through our digital publications and events, the RSL team (Molly, Martha, Annette, Rosie and Jess) will be working four days per week in July and August. The RSL’s virtual office will be closed on Fridays.

We’ll be staying in touch and launching some new initiatives (including workshops and a programme of book groups) this summer, so I hope we’ll have a chance to see each other again – even if only on screen – soon
