Lockdown Poetry: The Covid Long Haul

An anthology of 21 poets reflecting on the Covid pandemic

An anthology of 31 poems about the experiences of and reactions to the Covid pandemic from 21 established and emerging poets, Lockdown Poetry: The Covid Long Haul shows the resilience of poetry, its capacity to articulate the difficult and the joyous, the ordinary and the otherwise unspeakable. Thank heavens for the fearlessness of poetry and the tenacity and wisdom of its many voices. These poets are speaking to all of us about the effects of this Covid long haul – they are speaking what we all need to hear.
