Lockdown Empty city centre streets. Hushed motorways flowing free. Neighbours talk from doorsteps. Quiet, blue skies bereft of trails. Spring pressing on, oblivious.

Stella has always worked to create pictures with words, from writing brochures to teaching English to primary children. Recently she took part in a course on environmental writing, during which she discovered that she really enjoys the precision of poetry and flash fiction.
