Writing Home: An Antidote to Feeling Stranded is a collection of videos the Nelson Arts Festival has commissioned from Kiwi writers living here and overseas. The writers were invited to think about the idea of "home" - particularly of being apart from those they love - and to share a poem or an excerpt from one of their works.

 The Nelson Arts Festival is one of the arts sector's recent Covid casualties, with most of the programme having to be cancelled.  But this show can go on, online.  Writing Home writer, Paula Morris joins Lynn to discuss.
