Hope is the Thing: A Collaborative Writing Project

V1 Staff


The Chippewa Valley Writers Guild, in its effort to connect writers around the Eau Claire area, are launching a new effort to connect writers virtually during the time of social distancing and self-isolation during the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Called "Hope is the Thing," the effort is to establish a collaborative platform that regional writers can use to publish creative work. The writers guild is accepting submissions of 500 words or less in the form of poems, essays, short fiction, or personal experiences on the subject of hope. 

"May our art be the gift that help us heal."

Learn more about the details about submitting your work here.
