Using her talent for capturing children’s perspectives and using recent interviews with children themselves, during lockdown Cheryl Moskowitz has been writing a brand new collection of poems. The Corona Collection – A Conversation records their thoughts, questions and experiences while they live in a world turned on its head by the coronavirus pandemic.
She asked them these questions: Suppose you woke up tomorrow and it was a corona-free world, restrictions all lifted. Where would you go? What would you do? What new rules, if any, might you put in place for a safer, happier world? Funny, touching and affecting, these poems form a unique record of children’s thoughts and feelings in a period in which our lives were turned upside down.
This collection was published with Pop Up Projects as a special edition for schools taking part in our programmes in 2020.
