In late March 2020, A) GLIMPSE) OF) made an open call asking writers, and artists:
What is your NEST during lockdown? If you feel like sharing your thoughts during this time, send along your collaborative poems, your monologues and drawings, your tears, your aargh!, your sleepless nights, your manifestos, your curses, and your sadness.
To my delight, a lot of fascinating responses came in. Poems, sound poems, photo collages, sound and prose pieces, visual and prose poems, conceptual photographs, and drawings depicting worries, memories, longings, and changing habits in those extraordinary times. Works were published gradually.
Many thanks to Clara Burghelea, John Morgan, Daniel Whelan, Caterina Stamou, Anatoly Kudryavitsky, Tracy Gaughan, Zoe Sklepa, Tony Iantosca, Amy McCauley, Smaragda Nitsopoulou, Thomas Osatchoff, Daphne Xanthopoulou, Richard LeDue, Kevin Canfield, Oz Hardwick, Babak Ahteshamipour, L Scully, Catherine Chatzidimitriou, Sara Rosenthal, Hunter Gagnon, Kiriakos Spirou, L Scully, Catherine Chatzidimitriou, Sara Rosenthal, Christina Alexiou, Robert Sheppard, Anthoula Lelekidis, Marie Hervé, Zebulon Huset, Jessica Tyson, Nolan Hutton, Daniel M.
