QC Life in the New Normal Writing Project Conversation

QC Life in the New Normal Writing Project Conversation

In this approximately 14-minute chat, Kathryn and Lynn talk about the importance of this writing project, suggestions for writing pieces, and how to submit them. Watch this their chat here: QC Life in the New Normal Writing Project Conversation.

We'd like your help in preserving real-time reflections about life in the Quad Cities during the COVID-19 era.

To do so, submit approximately 200-500 word writing pieces in any format about how your life right now and how you are coping. For example, adults and teens may submit essays, short stories, or other creative writing pieces. Children may want to send in diary entries or even letters to their future selves. 

If you are struggling with writer's block, here are a few prompts to ask yourself: What am I grateful for? Who have I come to admire? How have I changed?


Submit your writing three different ways:
