The Red Cross of Serbia, in cooperation with the Commissioner for Protection of Equality, is inviting Serbian citizens, especially those over 65 to participate in the writing contest “Life in the age of corona: How were you spending your time in isolation?” Days of COVID-19 pandemic meant isolation for many of our people. This contest is a creative way to, through prose or poetry describe how you organised your days in isolation, what activities you did, what your thoughts and emotions were.
The best works will be collected in a book “Life in the age of corona: How were you spending your time in isolation?” and ten of the best will be chosen by a committee of experts and awarded prizes. The awards ceremony will be organised in October.
