Eighty poets on the pandemic.

Thousands upon thousands of poems were written in the unforgettable year 2020, when corona virus changed the world. Eighty of the best have been carefully selected for Shoestring’s new anthology. They come from all five continents and all corners of Britain, and look from several different angles at the crisis. They are not all about doom and gloom. Sickness, bereavement and isolation are all here, along with empty cities and animals roving the streets, but there are also some very funny and life-enhancing poems about how people are coping in extraordinary times, and intend to come through.
