From the ACCC Newsletters (Ongoing Opportunities):

Call For Writers: Would you like to share the poetry and literary prose you have been writing while you shelter in place?  We are starting an ACCC Pandemic Arts Journal, and we encourage you to submit your work in written, video or audio form. In fact, we would especially encourage you to make a video of you reading your work, upload it on YouTube, and submit it as directed on the website. If you don’t know how to do that, there are many places on the internet to find out. Check out the website for details on how to submit. Use #ACCCPandemicArtsJournal if you post it on your social media accounts.

Haikus for Healing:  Want to lighten someone’s day? If you write a haiku in chalk on a sidewalk (where permitted) or post a haiku in your yard, take a picture and post it on the ACCC Facebook and Instagram pages along with #ACCCHaikus4Healing. Wouldn’t it be fun to make someone smile reading poetry!
