GLOBAL WRITING LOCKDOWN

Let's make a deal! When this Covid-19 lockdown is over we go to shows, eat in restaurants, hire freelancers for awesome gigs, and give grandma a big kiss.

But until then: Wash your hands, cough in your sleeve, and make a book with us!

THIS EMPTY SPACE IS YOURS:

What can I put in it?
 - An angry poem
 - A solidary shopping list
 - A contagious joke
 - A lonely haiku
 - A passionate manifest
... you decide!
 
How do I send my work to you?
It's easy! Write your text and your information in the form below.
 
Can I write by hand? Draw? Paint? Photograph?
Yes, yes, yes, and yes of course! But then you have to scan and send your work via WeTransfer to lockdown_global@ordskaelv.org no later than May 11. 2020.
 
When is the deadline? When will the book be published? And who is Ordskælv and The Global Writing Movement?

WHY GLOBAL WRITING LOCKDOWN?

 
We miss each other! We need each other. And now we have to find a way to be there for each other, separately.

The global pandemic brings uncertainty and worry and opens us to new perspectives. Let's share them with each other!

Global Writing Lockdown is a collection of stories we write together, separately.
 
We look forward to creating a publication with you. Send your contribution below and we will invite you to the digital release party in your (and all other contributers') living room on July 11, 2020.
