Your story is important. Each voice helps to understand what’s happening - the ordinary and the extraordinary - right now, as we all are living it.

WOSU’s Letters from Home is recording the day-to-day lives of all of us through the COVID-19 pandemic.  We ask for reflective stories and thoughts. While social media is a quick splash in a puddle, we are looking for a deep dive in your feelings and life.

WOSU Public Media will curate these stories and post them on our various formats including on the radio, TV and online. We’ll let you know how we use your stories so you can tune in.
