In April 2020 our PR expert Emma decided to run a poetry competition on social media, encouraging people to write about their lockdown experiences.
We received so many great submissions to the poetry competition, we decided to publish them all in an app. The idea was to create a lasting monument to people's creativity and resilience during a challenging time.
We developed a beautiful little app that will allow people to enjoy the poetry anthology on their device.
We invited local artists to produce bespoke artwork to accompany the poetry.
A simple navigation allows you to read random poems or browse the collection.
Love your favourites so you can come back to them again and again.
The coronavirus crisis and subsequent lockdown was difficult for many people. We hope that by running the poetry competition and producing the Poetry in Lockdown app, we provided an outlet for people to express themselves and reconnect.
