Clare Gough

Short StoryDon’t Touch the Carrots, 2020

Did You Touch The Carrots is a story about how regular people become culpable for, or, accessory to the bad things that happen in our world. The short tale, set within the familiar context of a pandemic, explores how fear and struggling mental health are often the starting places for biases, hatred, and racism. If we want to deconstruct how atrocities happen, we need to dig up their roots.
