Submit a Story to The Facing Project: “Alone Together”

The Facing Project is a national organization that aims to create a more empathetic world through stories that inspire action. In this time of isolation, The Facing Project staff and supporters have asked themselves how, as oral historians, they can best capture this moment and continue to help people tell their stories. After much brainstorming and encouragement from others in the writing community, they have decided to launch a new book, “Alone Together: Stories from a Pandemic.”

The Facing Project is seeking stories from across the country from all walks of life about our time alone together. Learn more and submit your story by May 15: facingproject.com/2020/04/15/alonetogether

All submitted stories will appear on the website, and 15 of the stories will be selected for publication in the book. One story will be featured in late June on The Facing Project Radio Show on NPR.
