Untold Stories

Untold Stories

Submissions are open.

Untold Stories: Uncovering LGBTIQA+ stories of the COVID-19 pandemic is a program being run by Monash Public Library Service from June 2022 to March 2023.

Don’t leave your story untold.

LGBTIQA+ individuals, family members and allies are invited to submit prose, photography and other creative works that tell their pandemic story, to the Untold Stories project.

Stories collected will capture the unique perspectives of the COVID-19 pandemic through the experiences of the LGBTIQA+ community.

Stories and artworks will be featured in an anthology.

Submit your work

Submissions are open until 28 February 2023.

If you don't have a finished work, you can work with a writer or poet to craft your story. Once finished, you can decide whether or not you submit it for inclusion in the final publication.

Follow the links to find out more about the workshops, and book your place.
