What’s made you laugh during these strange times? Do you scour the Internet for relief from your troubles? What has brightened your days during quarantine? Is it even ok to laugh now?

I’d like to extend an invitation to contribute to the archive Journal of the Plague Year, a crowd-sourced collection of thoughts, artwork, poetry, oral histories, journals, tweets, stories, photographs, and memes—anything that records or reflects on this unique time in history during the Coronavirus pandemic. Journal of the Plague Year is a collaborative effort spearheaded by Arizona State University and includes all people’s contributions worldwide.

This particular collection is related to humor, but feel free to submit under any category—whether ordinary or spectacular. Some examples of humorous submissions might be personal tales from homeschooling, from remote work-at-home situation, about the virus itself, and how home life and day-to-day activities have changed. Any experiences and reflections are important and would be an essential contribution in the archive for future generations to understand our time.

Submitting is simple and you can submit any type of file. Upload your submission to the Share Your Story Page. You will see on the Share Your Story tab and a form which will guide you through the steps. If you have any questions or need any help, feel free to contact me at Lynribisi@gmail.com. In the description field, please use the hashtag #humor if you are uploading funny content.
