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 Jim Olwell, writing in April, 2020.
I met a woman online and we exchanged very easily and appreciatively in writing for a week.
We seemed to be very attracted to each other.
We decided to meet in the Notre Dame des Neiges cemetery on the mountain yesterday, each taking our cars. Nobody was there.
