Covid Creativity: 6Aug2020

By Jerry Boroff

I write predominantly non-fiction poetry and prose. I am at ease to express my emotions and innermost thoughts in print. I am ambivalent about publishing what I write. During times when I feel very creative, I’m willing to share my creations for public view but at other times I feel embarrassed for exposing my “nakedness”. Perhaps others know what I am trying to describe.

I have been working on a two-volume book about my experiences as a plumber. I have written many drafts over a decade and hope to one day self-publish it. Perhaps I will be ready to put it all together by the end of this year or next.

Collectif members, send an image (or a few) of very recent work to with up to 100 words describing what you did, materials used, inspiration, etc. Maybe share how you’re feeling & how creativity helps. We’d like an informative, inspiring show & tell. Writers, send us poetry, lyrics, a short piece or excerpt.


  1. Wonderful work. Very thought and emotion provoking. Fog Patches of Hope is gut-wrenching. I sure can relate to those solid bars of helplessness meeting my touch as I stumble. Thanks for sharing in spite of the uncomfortable exposure. (can relate to that as well)
