Your Pandemic Stories


Where to read the posts you submitted in response to our request

Last week, ahead of the third anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic, Medium asked you to submit your own pandemic stories. To date, we’ve received some 600 responses, with themes ranging from the personal to the political to the medical. You can read a list of some of our favorites here or see all of the submissions here.

Taken together, the entries paint a pointillist picture of the pandemic, each dot meaningful in its own right and also part of a larger, broad-canvas whole.

We hope you enjoy them. And thank you to all of you who contributed.
