In March 2020, at the start of lockdown, Muscaliet’s Deputy Editor, Moyra Tourlamain, invited the Muscaliet authors to join a very informal project. There were no rules: the writers simply agreed to share whatever they could write each week. All they had to do was to keep on writing.
Simon Smith, Philip Terry, Chris McCully, Ian Brinton, Michael Grant, Duncan MacKay, John Worthen, Simon Everett and Moyra Tourlamain contributed poems, translations, drama, essays and aphorisms to what has become a remarkable record of creative resilience in the face of isolation and insecurity.
Our thanks go to these authors for allowing us now to share their work more widely.
