View all news
Posted on: 15th March 2021
In April 2020, poet Hannah Stone was invited to become poet theologian in virtual residence for Leeds Church Institute, charged with writing an uplifting and empathetic weekly reflection on the impact the Covid-19 lockdown was having on the communities of Leeds, using her own and others’ poetry as a medium. Week by week Hannah drew on religious ideas, poetry, art and music to map a route through this fast-changing and unpredictable experience.
The book was launched as part of Leeds Lit Fest 2021.
