Literature of Isolation

Isolation - for different reasons - has always been a stimulating environment for literary production. Many writers and creators have created literary masterpieces during these periods, which have since been preserved by history. Isolation is also a way of thinking, a way of focusing on specific tasks, and an opportunity for self-realization through expression. In periods of isolation, you can travel, fly away and discover the unknown. You can search for the new while seeking respite from the burden of life to write down your thoughts and engrave out the details of what you have observed and learned. You can then can collate these lessons learned from the experiences you have created and turn them into unique works of literature. Launched during the COVID-19-induced period of isolation, and building on the foundational role of the Literature, Publishing and Translation Commission to encourage and motivate creators, the ‘Platform for the Literature of Isolation’ gives writers the opportunity to share their literary and creative productions, whether stories, novels, diaries or poetry.
