Time to rethink

Cherry buds

Much has changed since March 2020. Hopes that an emergency on the scale of the global pandemic and financial crisis might provoke a more egalitarian society have not been realised. At least not yet.

However, this March there are reasons to hope that this might be the last lockdown. 

For this prompt about rethinking, you could: 

  • revisit something you wrote in March 2020 and rewrite it from your current standpoint, hopeful or otherwise
  • or, if you are inspired by Bernadette Mayer’s experiment (click here to read a summary) of rewriting someone else’s words, you might pick a LIVE submission and rewrite that from your own point of view. 

We hope that you might find some inspiration in this writing prompt but as always if you would like to write something else - a diary entry, poem, your reflections on something else about your life at the moment - we'd be delighted to read whatever you would like to send.
