Join us on Zoom this Wednesday for the first of two February sessions and help keep up the COVID-secure creativity!
Follow these four simple steps to be part of the meeting:
- Tap or click the ‘I’m attending’ button in the meeting listing below (find the button on this newsletter’s webpage). A panel headed ‘I’m attending on…’ will appear.
- In the ‘I’m attending on…’ panel, tap or click the PayPal logo and follow the instructions to contribute your £2 subs using your debit or credit card.
- When you’ve made your payment, check your email inbox for a message from Southwest Scriptwriters titled ‘Thank you for your subs payment.’ If you don’t find this email with PayPal’s payment confirmation and you’ve checked your spam and junk folders for it, please be sure to get in touch using our ‘Email us’ form to let us know it hasn’t arrived.
- The ‘Thank you for your subs payment’ email includes the Zoom meeting ID and password. If you’re unsure how to use these to log in to the meeting, follow our handy guide.
Check your PayPal email address
Our subs payment system sends your Zoom login details to the email address you have registered with PayPal. Some of you have former or abandoned email addresses listed with the online payment service and so haven’t heard from us after making your £2 contribution. To avoid this, please make sure that you have your current email address listed with PayPal.
