Call for Mss. WordCity Literary Journal’s March 2022 Issue

It’s been two years now since Covid-19 circumvented the Globe. Two years of mitigations. Two years of sickness and loss. Two years of missing family, friends and the life events that bind us together. It’s also been two years of science denial. Of the continued rise of conspiracy theories and theorists. Two years of protests that endanger our already stretched-thin hospitals and medical staff.

So much has happened that hasn’t happened before in our lifetimes.

Meanwhile, wealthy countries have learned what it is to live with the kind of uncertainties the developing world knows all too well. We’ve also seen how the same wealthy countries can queue at the front of every line for life-saving vaccines.

For all of these and so many other reasons, WordCity Literary Journal is dedicating it’s March 2022 issue to matters of the pandemic.

We invite you to send works that touch on this in any way the theme moves you, and thank you in advance for your interest in our journal.
