The Poetry and Covid anthology is a collaborative effort, recognizing our belief that a communal response is required to effectively address the pandemic.

19 UK poets have been paired with 19 poets from elsewhere in the world, with each pair collaborating between June and November 2020.

The Poetry and Covid anthology will be published by Shearsman early in 2021.
