Our Corona Diary – Consent Form

Our Corona Diary is a not for profit project to get children and young people to document the experience of the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic. It was organised by a team of volunteers made up of writers for children Addy Farmer, Matt Killeen, Candy Gourlay, Jo Wyton and founder Kathryn Evans.

From July 2020 until the yet undefined end of the Quarantine period, Our Corona Diary will be collecting and archiving diary entries created by children and young people during the Coronavirus Pandemic. These may be diary entries or diaries themselves. We will archive and catalogue these on the website in blog form, with a view to publishing a book anthology of Corona diary entries. Find out more on the website https://www.ourcoronadiary.com.
