Event Details

Long Hauler Publishing is pleased to announce an open call for short stories, commentary, letters, essays or poetry addressing the lived experience of COVID long-haulers. The goal of the Long COVID anthology is to harness support for American COVID long-haulers while furthering a wider understanding of Long COVID’s ongoing effects. This opportunity is NOT restricted to professional or published writers! The anthology is by and for long-haulers and serves as a historical document. We are a small press that welcomes marginalized and underrepresented voices.

The editing team is especially interested in the following themes:

  • Daily Reality

  • Community & Family

  • Employment/Unemployment

  • Support

  • Emotions

  • Isolation

  • Routine

  • Symptoms

  • Mental Health

Submission Guidelines: Short stories, commentary, letters, and essays should be 800 – 1500 words and poems up to two pages. One submission per person. Work should use a 12-point font, be original and unpublished and written in English. Contributors must be 18 years of age or older and reside in the United States.

Submission Deadline: March 31, 2023  

Selected works will be published in the 2023 anthology.

Include a brief bio of up to fifty words describing who you are, if/when you were diagnosed with COVID, and a link to any previously published writing. Note: You do not have to be a published writer as this book will reflect the real and true lived experiences of COVID long-haulers. If your piece is accepted, you will be notified by email. All contributors will be paid an honorarium and receive an electronic copy of the published book. There will be a fabulous online book launch party open to all.
