If the OP wants to provide a GUI editor that resembles MS Write, with
which his attendees would likely be familiar, he might resort to Libre
Office https://www.libreoffice.org/ .  Libre Write
https://www.libreoffice.org/discover/writer/ is part of what is
essentially a free MS Office Suite, and runs on many platforms.  But
it's not a programmer's editor.  (If this has already been mentioned
in this thread, please forgive me.)
