Now accepting story submissions for our upcoming online projects. 

We are currently accepting pandemic-related essays, creative non-fiction, 

and poetry. Submissions must be true and authentic; capture a "snapshot" of life during the past year.  

 

We are specifically interested in relatable or unique stories from the frontline, or of human connection, parenting through the pandemic, connecting with relatives, and stories involving at-risk populations. 

We welcome stories that speak to

the losses and the silver linings of the Covid-19 Pandemic. 

We prefer stories that:

* follow a circular arc or which focus on a specific event

* have clear perspective and definitive voice

* offer a unique perspective of the global pandemic

Submissions should be well-written for a general audience (ages 18+).

All submissions must be original and not yet published or copywritten, and adhere to the formats specified below.

The deadline for submissions has been extended!

Please submit by May 27th. 

Writers whose stories are accepted will be featured on a live, online storytelling program hosted by Roc The Mic Productions. This recording will be available on RocTheMic.org for posterity.  

You will be notified by July 15 2021 of your story's status.
