Pondering the pandemic column

The Reporter is offering a new column beginning this week: “Pondering the pandemic.” (See the first column on page 2.) People have changed their lives during the pandemic – everything from learning a new skill to perfecting an old one. The Reporter is asking readers to submit a short article (from 100-400 words) about something they did or learned because of the pandemic.

“This idea was suggested by our first columnist, Sima Auerbach,” said Rachel Esserman, executive editor of the paper. “We thought it would be fun for people to share some of their pandemic successes and amusing anecdotes about things that didn’t work out as expected.”

To submit an article, e-mail the article to Treporter@aol.com with “Pondering the pandemic” in the subject line. Articles may be typed in the body of the e-mail or attached as a Word or text document.
