together is a monthly online journal — published by Rozzie Bound, an independently owned bookstore in Roslindale, Massachusetts (USA) — which seeks to provide an outlet for sharing new and original writing and artwork created during the COVID-19 pandemic.  We hope it will encourage creativity and thoughtful reflection as we grapple with the immense challenges we are facing and generate ideas for how we can build a more caring and equitable society in the wake of this tragedy.

The journal is an evolving work in progress, pulled together somewhat hastily during the first few weeks of COVID-19 quarantine.  It is also cross-generational, reflecting the fact that many of us are spending more time at home making art with our little ones. We have featured creative work from people of all ages, including children as young as five.

We plan to publish a new issue every month are currently looking for:

  • essays
  • short stories
  • short plays
  • poetry
  • visual art
  • cartoons

If you would like to contribute a piece of art or writing for our next issue, please reach out using our contact form.
