Slam on Social Distancing

During this time of COVID-19 the world needs to come together to stay safe. Ironically, coming together right now means staying apart. The best way to prevent the spread of the virus is to practice social distancing, which means limiting contact with other people.

What does social distancing mean poetically?

We want to offer you a safe space to share your thoughts on COVID-19 and what social distancing means poetically. In this time of limiting social interaction, we will truly be able to see the power of words. This is a difficult time for everyone, and we need poetry now more than ever to bring us together.
