This project is part of our #DroicheadConnects programme, and is a collaboration with Nicola Pierce, our Artist in Association and Dani Gill, our Literary Audience Development Officer.

Whether you are a student, a frontline worker, a parent, a young person or someone cocooning, we would like to hear from you. In the format of a diary entry, and at a maximum of 500 words, please email us your contribution, a selection of which will be published online and in The Drogheda Indpendent. Submission windows will be open for each month (June, July, August) and you can send your diary entry to: droicheadarts2020@gmail.com
