How has your life been disrupted by COVID-19 – personally and professionally? What impact has it made on you and your loved ones? Your friends and neighbours? Your clients, customers, and audience? And how have you responded? What have you observed and concluded about the situation? How has life prepared you, or left you unprepared, for what is happening? How has your life been changed? What have you done to make life easier for yourself and for those in your circle?

I'm looking for short memoirs and creative non-fiction accounts of life in the difficult straits the Corona virus has placed us in. Stories of triumph but also of tribulation; stories of isolation but also of solidarity; stories of personal loss but also of public renewal; stories of self-quarantine but also of bold action; stories of things that made you question, or that renewed, your faith in humanity. Especially, stories of individual and community spirit in the face of something unparalleled in our generation.

I shall collect these stories for consideration in an anthology by The Ginger Press in Owen Sound.

Stories should be non-fiction narratives and recount events in, or related to, the Grey-Bruce area.

Poems, song lyrics and essays are acceptable as well! Be creative, reflective, and heartfelt.

Submissions should not exceed 1000 words. Please submit in .doc, .docx or .odt formats.

Submissions will be accepted on an on-going basis. I do not have a formal deadline. I may not be able to use all stories.

Please send all submissions to [email protected] with "Back Line" as the subject heading.

Thank you! I look forward to reading your submissions!
