For some of you, this may be the first time you've used Zoom, but it's really easy and since you have already accessed this website, you can certainly Zoom!

You do not need a Zoom account, just click the link that will be sent when registering for each event.
Do this 15 minutes before your first event as you will need to download a small piece of software. For subsequent events, 5 minutes before is fine.

For most events, to avoid distractions during the talk you will be muted and your video turned off.


If you have never used Zoom before (as so many of us hadn't pre-Covid), this Seniors_Guide may be useful.

If you have specific questions about Zoom, these FAQs may help.


We hope you enjoy the Berwick Literary Festival, online for the very first time.
