Tales from the Pandemic

We want your stories (real and imagined) about living in a pandemic. Your poetry too. What has this time been like for you? This unprecedented world situation has been thrust upon us and we have all had to cope one way or another, we have all had to find our way in the midst of a deadly, invisible adversary. Through varying degrees of lockdown and quarantine we have all had to find a way to be, a way to carry on living. Tell us how it’s been for you. Photos and illustrations welcome.
