How’s it going? Here, it’s weird. Always felt the best part of the NYT was the reader comments, and thought it might be cathartic for Holland Weekly readers to have a place of their own. Send us your thoughts, feelings and stories about this time in your life as you navigate and witness others navigating the pandemic. Did you hear the opera singer from his Grand Haven porch? Did you swerve on a run to avoid a dad teaching his daughter how to ride a bike? Or has your life taken a more sinister turn. In the spirit of a problem shared is a problem halved, let us know. Short descriptions, poems, creative nonfiction and more (like photos and artwork sent as 72 dpi resolution jpeg) are welcomed. Email an MS Word document with your piece and include your name and where you’re writing from: hollandweekly@gmail.com. Thank you, and take care.
