MyVLF was started by three writers, who wanted to help connect readers and authors in their own homes. Gwyn GB, Deborah Carr and Kelly Clayton are all avid readers, but they found it difficult and often too expensive to travel to literary festivals. They created MyVLF in early 2019, and had no idea that by 2020 it was going to be vital for those locked-in at home with Covid-19. One of the decisions Gwyn, Deb and Kelly made, was not to charge for MyVLF. Anyone can join and attend events for FREE. It has been a lot of hard work and dedication to keep MyVLF going while still try to juggle writing careers and day jobs, and if you feel able to afford it, then making a small donation would be very much appreciated.
