People of Wigan!! We are producing a paperback book containing poetry and creative writing penned about thoughts, feelings and experiences from the Covid-19 lockdown period.

Thank you to everyone who submitted work. The idea of this book is to create something that we can all have to look back on as a reminder of both how difficult things were and how we managed to overcome them in different ways. At times like this we can sometimes feel helpless to affect change so in some tiny way, this is an opportunity to put your thoughts down forever for the world to read.

Where Is The Book Available To Buy?


The book is available to buy online from Amazon. All proceeds from sales of the book will be used to support the work we do at The Old Courts.

As a not-for-profit organisation it’s crucial that we do everything we can to enable us to continue the community work we do.
