Poetry has been the saviour for many during lockdown, the very therapeutic nature of expressing thoughts and emotions through written and spoken works can lift the spirit. Poetry and music can touch our deepest emotions.
Chris Hudson – Guernsey Poet
I had the pleasure of meeting a Guernsey Poet Chris Hudson while living in St Peters Port. He has published his poems on his website along with his drawings and sketches.
If poetry is the new pandemic
Being lockdown for days, weeks and endless cups of tea with only 4 walls as company, poetry has given people that much needed creative outlet. There are vast waves of poetry groups, podcasts, videos and stories of poetry since the pandemic.
If you have been writing poetry, then here is a fantastic opportunity to get your work published.
Published poet and founder of ‘Poetry Now’, Ian Walton, says
‘in times of crisis poets pick up their pens. We have been inundated by poets wanting to have their poetry preserved and we will be publishing a collection of the work we have received.’
