COVID Diaries: Submit your story

May 13, 2020

WDET and the Wayne State Libraries are working together to collect Wayne State stories and experiences throughout this pandemic to add to a WDET project called COVID Diaries: Stories of Resilience. Everything submitted to the project will be donated to the Walter P. Reuther Library, Archives of Labor and Urban Affairs for preservation in the University Archives and your submission may appear on the WDET social channels, website or on air. 

Sharing is simple: Take a picture or video that reflects your own interpretation of the weekly theme. We also welcome your story as a written narrative (up to 300 words).
