FAQ

Who can I write a story about?
Any Kentuckian, past or present, who died from Covid-19.
If you reside in Kentucky, you may also write about someone you lost to Covid-19 who was not a Kentuckian. In addition, you may write about someone you lost during this time frame, to causes other than Covid, and who you could not properly memorialize or mourn due to social distancing, etc.  These stories will be posted on this website but may not all appear in the printed anthology proposed for future publication.

Do I need to reside in Kentucky to submit a story?
No. You can write and submit from anywhere.

Can minors submit a story?
We prefer that anyone under the age of 16 work on their story with an adult, if possible.

I want to submit a story about my battle with Covid-19 and what a hard time I’m continuing to have. Can I do that?
