Some of Canada's greatest literary voices join forces in the first installment of Telegrams from Home, Vol. 1: Life Under Lockdown During COVID-19, a collection of stories, reflections, and non-traditional work presented by West End Phoenix and Kobo Originals. We asked writers, poets, parents, essential workers, and humans of all kinds to tell us about a personal moment that defines their pandemic experience. Featuring pieces by Ivy Knight, Claudia Dey, Margaret Atwood, Michael Crummey, Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, Dave Bidini, David Sax, Michael Winter, Alex Lifeson, and David James Brock, these pieces are interwoven with stories from citizens across Canada providing a diverse set of reflections on the personal experience of how life has changed since the beginning of the pandemic. 100% of the proceeds from this collection will go towards supporting Community Food Centres Canada, a national organization building health, belonging and social justice in low-income communities, and their Good Food Access Fund, an emergency relief fund providing take-away meals, produce boxes, grocery gift cards, and other emergency support for Canadians facing economic uncertainty.
