The Language of Lockdown is a book containing poetry and creative writing penned about thoughts, feelings and experiences from the Covid-19 lockdown period.

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.

The book contains over 150 pieces of writing and imagery by the people of Wigan and beyond. We're hoping to have an official release date very soon so watch this space.

Thank you to Greater Manchester Combined Authority for helping us to make this possible. As soon as we have an official launch date, we'll shout it from the rooftops. Watch this space.
