A creative project offering a safe space to share your experiences and story of working during the COVID-19 crisis. Your story will be re-created into poetry and shared back to you.
This unique creative method of having your story listened to, honoured and reflected as poetry may help you to process and understand your experiences and related emotions.
If you are a member of hospital staff, whatever your role, you are warmly invited to share your story.
A one-to-one confidential 30 – 60 minute video call to share your story.
Your story and words will then be created into poetry.
A further (optional) call in which your poetry will be shared with you.
Copies of your poetry will be gifted to you via email / post.
With your permission there will be opportunity for the poetry to be anonymously shared on relevant digital platforms. This may encourage and support others who have had similar experiences.

‘Kerry’s skill of acute listening and her gentle queries resulted in her transforming my words into a lyrical piece that echoed my voice and yet enhanced underlying meanings. Such an interesting experience to see my personal story made into poetry.’ Jacquie L.
