COVID Stories - A digital memoir from the pandemic

Watch #AloneTogether

This week, First Person Arts Brings you #AloneTogether as a part of our new series COVID Stories: A digital memoir from the pandemic.   

Quarantining is tough! Storytellers this week have found hilarious and delightful ways to deal with being with each other (even when they’d rather not). 

Listen to Dave, a brand new Cat Dad, as he learns the personality of his new fur baby, Justine as she navigates sheltering in place with not one but two ex-husbands ( you thought you had it tough), enjoy Karin’s delightful story of connection over Buddhism in a bookstore and long time First Person Arts storyteller Nick as quarantining has driven him to the occult.  First Person Arts - We will keep you company.

How to Share your Story

Every 3 days, we will issue a new prompt on our website and social media platforms. These prompts can be anything from, "What are your cooking during the pandemic," to "What has social distancing taught you about yourself that you didn't know". We ask that you record your 5-minute story and email it to us with the subject COVID Stories. If you have any questions, you can also email us.
