Who We Are

Our first initiative is to raise funds via submissions to The Corona Silver Linings Anthology, a written thought capsule of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We want to give people around the world the opportunity to have their voices heard by providing an outlet to contribute life affirming stories and reflections during this historic period in time.

Whether you’re a seasoned author, an aspiring wordsmith, or an avid reader who has only ever dreamed of penning down your thoughts, we encourage you to donate and submit your piece.

A Written Thought Capsule of the Corona Pandemic

The LifeWrite Project is all about people and their expressions during the common experience of a global pandemic.

As the world copes with the pandemic and its impact, we are in our homes reflecting on the surreal landscape that has blanketed our lives. How is this affecting you and your families? How will you change your circumstances to not only survive but thrive? When people are faced with the most challenging, trying and traumatic situations, resilience and courage shines through, revealing strength they may not have known they had. We want to hear the lessons people have learned, the kindness they have shown and been shown, and the message they want future generations to take away from such a difficult time that no one could have predicted or prepared for. We want to hear about the silver lining, John Milton was speaking of clouds in his 1634 poem “Comus”, in the Corona Silver Linings we want to hear what light you have found through this darkness so that your flame can illuminate others and ignite their sparks.

LifeWrite is on a mission to change lives by enabling people to write and helping those in need!

The Corona Silver Linings Anthology will be published as a hardcover, softcover and eBook and provides an outlet for you to contribute life affirming stories and reflections during one the most challenging periods in our world’s history.

With your help we will create a written time capsule recording your thoughts, feelings and experiences during the Coronavirus pandemic. This will be an opportunity to share your life-affirming expressions that represent the best of humanity when challenged.

Topics such as a story about someone in your life that made a positive impact, reflections describing heroic people, stories of gratitude or “where were you” stories during the shutdown are just a few examples of what you could focus on. Think about what you want to share with your grandchildren and future generations, and the life lessons you will take away moving forward from this most challenging situation.
