About 

The Viral Imaginations: COVID-19 project is an interdisciplinary initiative focused on collecting, displaying, and archiving Pennsylvanians’ first-person, imaginative and artistic expressions made in response to their lived experience of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Viral Imaginations: COVID-19 project seeks to capture imaginative and artistic expression by Pennsylvanians in the forms of creative writing and visual art made in response to their first-person, lived experience of the coronavirus pandemic. Current and former Pennsylvanians are invited to submit creative writing (i.e., fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry) and visual art (still images only) to this project.  Accepted submissions will be displayed in a publicly-accessible, curated gallery and will be preserved there as an archive of this time of pandemic.

Please visit the Viral Imaginations: COVID-19 website often, and enjoy Pennsylvanians’ creative reflections!
