Stories from Home - Weekly writing in May and June

During the month of May 2020, VALID in partnership with Writers Victoria Write-ability Program, will be posting a weekly prompt on our website and social media for you to write 50 words or less about.

With so many of us isolated at home, this is a chance for us to reflect on our experiences and share them with others through our writing.

Let’s get creative in our responses to Coronavirus/COVID-19. Use the themes below to tell us how you are feeling. You can write to one or all 4 themes - it’s up to you.
