The book, aptly named ‘Writings in Lockdown,’ is composed of
pieces written by 25 part-time Creative Writing students during one of the
periods of lockdown and heavy restrictions, between March 2020 and December
The pieces of writing give a window into the authors’ worlds
during this unforgettable and seemingly unending period of our history,
speaking to the resilience and strength of the human spirit and how it survives
even in the face of constant low-lying levels of threat and danger.
Eabhan Ní Shuileabháin, Creative Writing tutor at Coleg
Menai, said, “It has been my privilege and pleasure to collate these writings
into this booklet and to act as the prompter and first reader for them. They
certainly made my journey through lockdown a much more interesting and pleasant
one! Enjoy reading them now, as a reminder and, maybe, as a prompt to make sure
we don't have to go back into lockdown again.”
