ABOUT OUR CORONA DIARY
LET'S FACE IT...
In the tedium and claustrophobia of the pandemic lockdown, it might be easy to forget that we are living through a historic event.
In the great tradition of Samuel Pepys and Anne Frank, Our Corona Diary hopes to document the experience through the eyes of young diarists and inspire a creative response to the crisis. Our hope is to collect an online archive of children's diary entries from this time, however long it continues.
Eventually, we hope to publish a curated collection of the diaries in an anthology, with a listing of all the names of the children who contributed to the project. We believe that this will be an important record of our children's daily lives through this historic disruption.
Even though we must be kept physically apart, we hope this process will bring people virtually together.
