In a year to forget, let's leave some words to remember.


oronavirus has turned the world upside down.

We want to hear your experiences - the good, the bad, the strange, the surprising, the funny. 


It might be a moment or a memory, something you heard or saw, felt or thought.

Tell us in no more than 50 words.

It can be a poem or prose, a single sentence or a single word!

There's no cost to enter and the most striking pieces will be exhibited (in person, we hope) in the new year. In doing so, we'll aim to raise money for a lasting tribute to our frontline healthcare workers.




“Coronavirus must be the worst hoax - all the stupid people have picked it.”
- Overheard, Melbourne.
Dear loyal customers, due to this shit coronavirus we will be closing soon.
- Store sign, Castlemaine, Victoria
A contagious ghost,
An oblivious host,
A sit in the park,
Is what I miss most.
- Anon. Melbourne
