Shropshire’s Covid Year


We’re planning a book based on the personal anecdotes of Shropshire people during the Coronavirus epidemic – tales of lock-down and of resiliance, of survival. to be published in March 2021.

Shropshire’s Covid Year will not be about medical disaster, sadness or bereavement although there’s been some of that; we’re looking for tales of triumph over adversity, of humour and of how some people found ways to get by. We’re talking stolen kisses, escaped otters, love among the bike sheds, ghost choirs, badgers around the brazier, football by moonlight.

The editorial committee is holding its first meeting on Thursday and we’ll be looking for submissions shortly.

YouCaxton are conducting a self-publishing workshop on Saturday 2 February 11 am to 1 pm at the Wolverhampton Art Gallery as part of the Wolverhampton Literature Festival. Admission is free and all are welcome. The workshop will provide an opportunity to learn about all aspects of self-publishing from completing the manuscript, to decisions about design and layout, through to the final print-ready files and publication. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions.
