Writing the Pandemic: Manchester's young voices
Writing is a great way of processing our lives. For young people living in a locked-down world, writing can be a helpful means of reflection and self-expression.
That's why the Centre for New Writing and Creative Manchester at the University of Manchester have launched a new writing initiative. Writing in a Pandemic invites students at Manchester high schools and colleges to send in their personal written responses to life in Covid-19 lockdown.
Running from 22 May 2020 to 26 June 2020, this is a unique opportunity for young people in Manchester to put their feelings about life in lockdown into words, while having a chance to win a variety of prizes.
Entries can be letters, poems, creative short stories, personal experiences or reports, up to one page in length and will be posted to a special supplement issue of leading international arts journal, The Manchester Review.
