Synopsis: Writedown provides a unique record of life in Galloway, South West Scotland during lockdown through the works of 22 writers in a collection of lyrical poetry, desperate rants, humour, and quiet endurance. They tell the story of a community encountering unprecedented times.
Writedown at its heart is a Covid diary of sorts, where each writer shares their personal experience with the UK’s first lockdown from March 23 – June 15. Some entries are reflective and poignant, and others humorous. I found myself tearing up more than once and smiling and laughing at other times. What the writers accomplish though, is to not only connect with each other, but to figuratively reach out to the reader and form a personal connection. Wherever you live, I promise, you will relate to the feelings of anxiousness, sadness, frustration, anger, boredom, and humor that are expressed. The twenty-two writers who have so generously shared what their lives were like during that first twelve week lockdown, represent all of us. It truly brings to mind that while we may be separated by thousands of miles, our shared life experiences, the good and the bad, bring us closer than we realize. Writedown is an essential read during this pandemic. I guarantee you’ll feel a little less lonely and isolated having done so.
