QC Life in the New Normal Writing Project
Want to be part of history? Submit writing pieces, documents, and photos about life in the Quad Cities during the COVID-19 era. We are collecting individual or group reflections about how life has changed since the pandemic began. With this collection, present and future generations of Quad Citizens will be able to learn what life was like for people during this time period.
For this project, we would like to collect essays, short stories, diary entries, poems, or other creative writing pieces as well as photographs and other visual art. In addition to these options, we would like to suggest donating physical documents as well such as letters, handwritten documents, or anything you'd like to share. This collection will help us to capture this period of history through the words of the people by preserving real-time reflections about life in the Quad Cities during the COVID-19 era.
Writing prompts include: How has my life change? What am I grateful for? Who have I come to admire? How have I changed? How have I adapted and created new ways to connect?
