This Roundhouse Roundtable digital discussion is open to any person aged 18-25
What is the future of creative facilitation for writers and poets? h6. How can we connect online to create, inspire, devise, and empower?

Reading the room now has a whole other dimension to it. What once happened in a physical space is now taking places in virtual rooms all over the world.

Topics and questions that will be covered during session will include:

• Best practise when facilitating a workshop or online session.

• Setting up the space, providing resources, implementing breaks, catering to a range of needs, holding people accountable from afar and hearing what is not being said.

• What is lost? and what is gained? How can we try to strike a balance between them.

• Which models can we learn from and which must we innovate? How will this affect outputs?

• What is effective monetisation for independent models? How accessible democratic and game-changing is this really?

This is a space to ask questions, to receive and share advice and techniques which promote and refresh best practice in the current climate and to cultivate a network of facilitators.
