Shelter in Place Writing

September 30 deadline

Join us in creating a collection of written works inspired by the pandemic and shelter-in-place. 

Whether or not you have ever written a poem, essay, or short story, we’d like to read what has flowed from your experience of isolation, face masks, toilet paper, 24-7 family life, or even perhaps a serious re-evaluation of what’s important in life!

Entries will be compiled into a “COVID-19” publication for sale in our gift shop to help generate lost income during this time.

Submit your compositions to Through the submission of your work, MMAC has permission to publish your piece in this one-time collection. Include your name, social media account, age, and town.
