Throughout next week, Tortoise will be publishing its Letters from Lockdown: a series of monologues by a variety of writers, thinkers, comedians and all-round good people. Each will be read by the author themselves and published with a transcript. They are a joy to both hear and read.
As an Easter weekend treat, as well as a preview of the series, weâ€™re making one of the Letters available early. Itâ€™s Mel Giedroyc on how, in lockdown, sheâ€™s sinking herself â€“ with a fervour â€“ into the Little Things. The arrangement of the spice rack, the contents of the previously unknown kitchen drawersâ€¦
Our Letters from Lockdown will also continue beyond next week â€“ and thatâ€™s where you come in. Weâ€™d like Tortoise members to submit their own Letters (to a maximum of a 1,000 words) and weâ€™ll publish the best ones in the app. The submission process is, well, an email to this address: email@example.com
