While we couldn’t be in the studio due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we decided we wanted to come out of such an uncertain period with something positive to show for it. We thought this would be a great time to get people writing for a virtual project and add another publishing credit to their resumes.
We asked our members to submit original works on the theme of “the world outside” – what they missed, what self-isolation felt like, what they wanted to do as soon as we could get back out there, or simply what came to mind using the words as a prompt.
In response we received a wonderful array of pieces, ranging from emotional real life writings, to thought provoking poems and fantastic fictions.
Everyone included in the zine will receive a copy, and we’ll be distributing copies to Nottingham libraries and arts venues.
Submissions for the zine closed in May 2020 and will be in print for release very soon!
