Description

The ninth issue of a digital journal created to alleviate the malaise of social distancing with exceptional writing and artwork.

The Quarantine Review celebrates literature and art, connecting readers through reflections on the human condition — our lived experiences, afflictions, and dreams. As we face a pandemic with profound implications, the essays within offer a variety of perspectives on the current predicament, encouraging readers to reflect on the world we knew before and contemplate how society can be reshaped once we emerge. Through The Quarantine Review, Dupuis and Sarfraz hope to give voice to the swirling emotions inside each of us during this unprecedented moment, to create a circuit of empathy between the reader, the work itself, and the wider world beyond the walls of our homes.

This issue includes writing from Jowita Bydlowska, Yuan Changming, Teresa Douglas, Hollay Ghadery, Eleni Gouliaras, Vera Hadzic, Kevin Heslop, Carol Lipszyc, Monty Reid, Deryck N. Robertson, Lynn Tait, Myna Wallin, Matthew Walsh, and Katie Welch, with art by Shannon Kennedy.
