In April 2020, we invited writers in Quebec to submit a story of a single day during the strange, uneasy time of coronavirus and pandemic, of social distancing and self isolation, of lockdown and quarantine.
We’re thrilled to announce that these stories have been gathered in Chronicling the Days: Dispatches from a Pandemic (Guernica Press). To learn more and buy the book, please visit https://www.guernicaeditions.com/title/9781771836579.
Please also join us on the QWF FB Community page, and let the authors know if their words resonated.
This piece is by Geoffrey Edwards, writing on Friday, April 3, 2020.
The nightmare still has its hold on me as I awaken. The dark is still all around, and I find myself thinking, it is a time of ending. It takes me more than an hour to calm the rapid heartbeat, to find the state of quiet acceptance that allows me to sleep again.
