COVID Creative: Coming Together in the Time of Coronavirus 

Greenspring Review Special Feature Section and Contest 

All entries submitted by April 15th will be eligible for cash prizes

Covid-19 has affected the lives of those across the world and has, in many ways, brought out the best and worst in individuals. Because of this, we want to give SU students a way to express themselves during this crisis. Whether it is a hilarious fiction or nonfiction story about being stuck inside with your family or a heartfelt poem commenting on the human experience, we want to hear it!

Send us your video journals, your quarantine songs, your sketches and photographs, your poems, your flash fiction, your comics, your best original memes, your infographics, your political and social commentaries. Send your quarantine playlists, your day-in-the-life videos, your soapbox speeches, and your anxiety-fueled monologues. Whatever you can think of!

How are you being affected by coronavirus?  

How are you dealing with quarantine?  What’s getting you through the day? 

How is the world around you changing?
