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 Aimee Louw, writing in April 2020.
I’m that hill seeker in town
You may have seen me dressed up for winter on top and summer on the bottom
Or dressed for spring on top, with yellow gloves and winter boots, good to minus 30
It’s all possible
