An historical record through poetry of how eight Southam poets lived with twelve months of Covid-19 Lockdown between April 2020 and March 2021.  How each month they continued to write supporting each other by email and Zoom, until they realised how they were all looking through similar eyes on a similar world.  We hope that this will prove to be an interesting historical document recording the effects of the pandemic on the psyche of the average person: their anxieties, hopes, introspection, etc.  As we emerge from this strange period we can look back via these poems and perhaps learn some lessons for future times.
