Extended Deadline … by Ms Paige Turner

02/10/2020 // by Jan Moran Neil

Thank you to all who have submitted to the anthology ‘When This is All Over …’ which is in aid of the Rennie Grove Nurses. Already there has been over 300 submissions from across the globe.

In the light of events, the deadline is extended for another six months until March 31st, 2021. The key to this decision is, well – in the title.

The brief is: poems or prose (fiction or creative non-fiction) up to 200 words. Add a sentence or two about yourself and where you come from. (Do mention any of your word wares.) You can have published your piece elsewhere. An attached Word document is helpful with your name on the submission. And please spread the word.

We are particularly interested in knowing about what has happened in your geographical corner, your work or retirement. This will be a historical document and getting a true reflection of how we are dealing with the pandemic is where our light should shine. So even if you have already submitted, please keep doing so. It’s good to be in touch. Just avoid the word ‘unprecedented’ please. Send to: info@janmoranneil.co.uk

I am delighted that her son David has submitted to the anthology as his mum would have done. As well as Jonathan Dancer, Pat’s son. Write on.
