On Writing through COVID
A Conversation during The 30th Annual Jersey City Art & Studio Tour
I have been writing about COVID ever since my daughter Molly fell ill in early March and I was concerned about the lack of testing at the time in my area. When I became sick shortly after, I kept writing -- a poem per day through the most challenging weeks of my illness, as well as personal prose pieces and essays. Several pieces of my work have been published (including April Mud, a poem published just this week in The Literary Nest), while others are still living on my computer waiting to be revised and compiled into larger projects.
Six months later, I am still recovering from the post-COVID syndrome, and I am still writing. Indeed, these long and quiet months of convalescence have given me ample time for writing and thinking.
Sign on tomorrow to learn more about what I have been writing through my long-haul COVID, why I have poured my attention into getting words onto the page and into print, and where I will be going with this body of work next.
