Solitude is part of everyone’s life. But COVID-19 has made many aspects of our lives more solitary. Even people locked-down in a crowded house can feel disconnected from society. We are all isolated in new ways, though for some solitude may be in short supply. 

How are you experiencing this? The Pathologies of Solitude project at Queen Mary University of London is collecting written testimonies, to create an archive of how the pandemic has affected people's experiences of solitude.

You can choose to stay anonymous or you can send us your name, age or any other information that you think is important to record. Your testimony may appear on our website or on social media; please bear this in mind when including any personal details.  

We look forward to hearing from you.
