‘In some ways [lockdown] has been a gift, offering the headspace necessary for creative writing, all too often pushed out by other demands on my time and energy. Inspired by my observations and reflections during lockdown, these poems cover a range of topics and employ different structures and devices.’During Dyslexia Awareness Week 2020 we showcased extracts of Anita’s poetry on our social media platforms. Two are below.
