Staying connected is especially important during these times of isolation and uncertainty. We may not be able to physically connect with one another, but there are forms of written communication that can provide an emotional connection and help fill the void that has been created by lack of real-world interaction.
With that in mind, we've compiled a short list of ideas that can be used as gifts for either yourself or a loved one during the Covid-19 quarantine, lockdown, social distancing etc.
A meaningful encounter with poetry, delivered each month through the romance of written word. Offered as a monthly subscription by our friends and stockist at Postscript Press
