It's been a tough two years with the COVID19 pandemic resulting in many deaths, awful illness for some and nasty long term effects for others, as well as lock downs in many places. We've also had a terrible fire season in Australia in the summer of 2019/20. Golvan Arts is based in Melbourne, Australia, the city with the most days of lock down in the world! People have continued reading and writing and our clients have been busy trying to promote their published work and creating new work.
