Poems from The Lockdown 2.022

 

Over five million people have died during the Covid-19 Pandemic

but in 2022, we have hope …

Vaccines have been developed and the rate of vaccination in the world is in increasing.

The virus has mutated to a more transmission but less deadly strain.

Covid-19 still kills with those who remain unvaccinated particularly at risk.

 

 

Poems from the Lockdown 2.022 will be a follow-up anthology

to the bestselling volume Poems from the Lockdown, which featured 146 poems from 115 poets across the world

 

The submission window opens 12 Jan 2022 and closes 2 Apr 2022

Submissions should reflect the following themes

What is your experience of the last two years of the Global Pandemic?

How has it affected you? How is it affecting you now? What are you hopes and/or fears for 2022?

 

Poetry is the very soul of humanity, part of our core of expression, a mode of communication, socialize, civilization;

it a way to show our love and empathy for our fellow human beings

 

As well as the new anthology,

twelve of the poems will be added to the original anthology in an additional chapter entitled 2022
