Poets respond to Covid-19: Collaborative UK and International Poetry Project

About the project

This project proposed the writing, exchange, publication and discussion of poetry as a significant cultural response, with benefits for the public in relation to processing, healing and wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The project produced an anthology of 30 poets resonding to COVID-19 and developed an accompanying interactive website that enabled collective public participation and engagement with poetry.
