San Francisco Creative Writing Institute authors read aloud their responses to the corona virus pandemic. Featured readers include Paul Corman-Roberts, San Francisco Poet Laureate Tongo Eisen-Martin, Hollie Hardy, Alexandra Kostoulas, former San Francisco Poet Laureate Kim Shuck and more. Just as Civil War poems and 1918 flu pandemic diaries shed light on their eras, so too do the stories of Dispatches from Quarantine illuminate our present moment. Topics addressed include Shelter-In-Place, Black Lives Matter, The Reopening and The Surge. Dispatches is a literary blog created and curated by the San Francisco Creative Writing Institute.
