Lockdown Life: A Rollercoaster Of Emotions

Front Cover
Master House Publishing, May 31, 2021 - 100 pages

In March 2020 the UK went into lockdown. Eventually. In the days, months and year that passed, Lisa took to her notepad and keyboard to express her rollercoastering emotions throughout this time. From outrage and despair, to boredom and sadness. Also sometimes, a bit of hope.

2020 and early 2021 also saw a lot of unrest in society as a whole and protest became a regular feature of this strangest of years. This collection touches on a range of reactions to these moments through poetry and what Lisa calls her 'angry acrostics'. What emerged from this is a truly relatable time capsule for this 'strange time' (a phrase not used anywhere between the covers of this book).

About the author (2021)

Lisa is based in North West England and started sharing her writing at spoken word events for the first time in 2019 after writing and performing a play at the Greater Manchester Fringe. In 2020, like all of us, she had to take her life and words online, where she shared them on social media and across various zoom open mic events. During this time, she focused on poetry writing and was published online by Visual Verse, Write Out Loud and Nymphs & Thugs. Lisa had poems featured in anthologies by Printed Words, The Black Engine Room Press and Local Gems Buzzin' Bards Anthology along with fundraising zines by the Coronaverses Collective and MadWomxn. Lisa performs regularly at spoken word events such as Verbose, Speak Easy and Testify and has had two poems featured on BBC Radio Manchester's Upload hour, including the title poem, Lockdown Life a Rollercoaster of emotions. Cheshire East Libraries also featured the title poem in their National Poetry Day celebrations.
