Other Places of Refuge

This is a list of other Irish literary projects set up during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their purpose is to keep people connected and to keep literature alive.

  • DECAMERON by the Perp Walk – Videos and the Written Word submitted by writers and hosted by the wonderful Eamon Mag Uidhir.
  • Pendemic – Pendemic is a way for us all to share our experiences, it’s a tool and a refuge, not a literary magazine for ordinary times but a journal for an exceptional one – so all voices will be included: we’re not showcasing literary talent but writing this pandemic out – you are all welcome. Hosted by: Joy Redmond, Liz Quirke, Niall McArdle and Ruth McKee.
  • Poetry Prompts – from Poetry Ireland’s Pet-in-Residence, Catherine Ann Cullen
  • Creative Bursts – daily writing prompts on Instagram from Sarah Webb
