As our worlds open up, it’s time for this little community to close up shop. We started this project with no master plan and have been bowled over by its reception and success. We started this project to document this moment in time and we had no anticipation that the result would be this rich archive of writing. You may have read our announcement a few months ago that the entire collection will be preserved by the Irish Poetry Reading Archive at UCD Library so we can rest easy that your work will be available for generations to come.
We would like to thank each and every contributor for sharing your pandemic experience with us. Your comments underneath the posts and on twitter have brought us closer together and we really appreciate the time you have dedicated to Pendemic and our contributors.
Don’t worry, we will be keeping the site live for your perusal. We hope to use this time to both improve the reading experience and to consider other ways of keeping the work alive. We hope our lives do get back to some sort of normal and that this site has served its purpose. However, we don’t know what way this awful pandemic will play out so never say never.
Thanks again and mind yourselves,
Joy, Liz, Niall and Ruth
