LITERARY SUBMISSION: I know you are engaging with a population for which I and others don’t have access to but would like to ask you if you can work with them in creating something. It will give people such a mental boost to express themselves and see it later in a publication.
As we go through this terrible time, many of us have fear and thoughts of how life will change. Often, it helps to express your feelings in writing and release them from your mind. If we share, we connect. Others read, relate, and know they are not alone.
vyris, a new online literary magazine, has been created to give coastside residents the opportunity to contribute their creation. We have an editorial team of summer interns eager and excited to begin working to have this published online by the end of June.
Please review the submission guidelines at www.vyris2020.com and feel free to share with your neighbors, especially young children! There is no cost to participate and we cannot create this without your contribution!
Should you have any questions, please feel free to email email@example.com.
Please share with others as you are able!
