The Art of Isolation

An Anthology of Poetry and Art

In lieu of the St. George Literary Arts Festival 2020, a book was conceived as an artistic historic compilation to record events of the pandemic. Poets and artists contributed unique and invaluable insights of courage and isolation.


Literary contributions for this publication are from members of St. George literary organizations i.e., Heritage Writers Guild, Dixie Poets, Red Rock Writers, League of Utah Writers and Utah State Poetry Society, whose memberships span beyond the state of Utah. A COVID art exhibition — already in place at the Sears Gallery on DSUs campus — was reproduced with permission from artists to add an artistic element to our story.

The Art of lsolation comes to life, gasping for clean air, requiring the help of many midwives, to find its place in history.
