Lockdown Letters

Letters from lockdown

How have you got through lockdown days? Quite literally — what has your routine been like?

Have you made a cup of tea at 6 each day

Have you moved to meet the mood?

We invite you to write us a letter telling us your lockdown routine.

A one-page letter. It could take the form of notes. It could include times.

These letters will be shown to poet Hannah Jane Walker who will create a legacy poem using parts of them. The poem, and your letters, will live on to mark this historic moment as part of the archive at University of Cambridge Library.

In these unreal times, the things that seem not of note, often are. Help us catch living memory.

Please send your letters to:

Lockdown Letters, Community team, Kettle’s Yard, Castle Street, Cambridge, CB3 0AQ

If you would like to receive your own copy of Hannah Jane Walker’s legacy poem in return, please include your name and postal address on a SEPARATE piece of paper, which will not be kept by Kettle’s Yard or archived by the University of Cambridge.

All Lockdown Letters should be received by Kettle’s Yard by Monday 17 August 2020.

This event is open to the public.
