During the last one year, each one of us has emerged as a warrior, having gone through a blend of pain, sorrow, loss & strength. While Covid has taken away a lot from us, #LifeInCovid has also taught us a lot! Covid Diary writing challenge is an opportunity, an outlet for each one of us to pen down those experiences of #LifeInCovid. This expression can take any form & language, be it poetry, quotes, stories! At the end of the challenge, we’ll reward this effort of yours by publishing your writings during these 21 days as your own individual book, something to remember your courage & strength by!
How will this work?
All the writers who register for the challenge will be provided with a form in which they will have to send the MS-Word File having all the content of their #LifeInCovid experiences. The writers can choose any form of writing to express themselves, be it poetry, musings, quotes, stories, sher-o-shayari etc. There are no restrictions on the language of the content. You can even write in multiple languages & have multiple form of writings! You can write a maximum of 50 pages, which typically means 25-30 poems or 50-60 quotes or 5-6 stories or any combination of these! The idea is to utilise the 21 days of this challenge to pen down your experiences of past one year of living in Covid using any of these writing forms!
