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, we’re making one of the Letters available early. It’s Mel Giedroyc on how, in lockdown, she’s sinking herself – with a fervour – into the Little Things. The arrangement of the spice rack, the contents of the previously unknown kitchen drawers…
Our Letters from Lockdown will also continue beyond next week – and that’s where you come in. We’d like Tortoise members to submit their own Letters (to a maximum of a 1,000 words) and we’ll publish the best ones in the app. The submission process is, well, an email to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
