Issue 7 (April 2021) – Lockdown

It’s been a turbulent year. One of chaos, heartbreak, separation and anxiety.
The University of Hull’s students have been kept away from campus and restricted to purely virtual contact with our vibrant community. We have been given limited guidance and attention by the government at every step, left guessing for the majority of the journey.

This issue of Hull Scribbler is to acknowledge this difficult and crazy period of our lives, and to showcase the creativity of our students. It is a celebration of talent and expression with the view to help bring us back together, connecting our experiences to remind ourselves that we aren’t alone.

Here at the Scribbler team, we have been blown away by the support of our University community, and the submissions we have received have been incredible. It has made me especially so enormously proud, and I want to thank each and every one of you, along with my brilliant editors. The future of the Scribbler was in question, but even with a small team we have restored its legacy – fresh, modernised, bigger than ever.

I hope you – our readers – enjoy this digital anthology.
