We need courage now more than ever. In the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic, courage must be our North Star. See what our participants have to say. 


Martin Luther once said: “everything that is done in this world is done by hope.” Hope fuels humankind; hope lets us dream; hope delivers us from the darkest and most difficult periods of our lives. Now, as lockdown eases but the menace and uncertainty of the coronavirus remains, hope is starting to take root. We encourage you to write stories about hope, and to think about how it relates to humanity –– both inside and outside of the current moment.
