Roger Hornett’s Covid Verses

On Thursday’s Drive I caught up with local poet Roger Hornett for a chat about his debut poetry collection “The Covid Verses“. Inspired by the events of the pandemic and written from the perspective of a fictional epidemiologist these poems superbly capture a moment in our history whilst questioning the narrative of national media coverage.

For the full interview including a live rendition of some of Roger’s poems from the book click play in the box below.

“The Covid Verses” by Roger Hornett is available in most book stores now and to get you copy or find out more click here.
