Contribute to our COVID-19 Time Capsule

For the past 18 months, NASW members have been sharing their experiences living and working through the coronavirus pandemic in our COVID-19 Time Capsule. It’s a patchwork quilt of entries from U.S. science writers of all stripes, backgrounds, and geographic locations.

The entries reflect the fear, heartache, and hope that have filled our days and weeks during this unprecedented time. They serve not only to create a historical record for future science writers, but also to help others in our professional community right now. Simply by sharing your story, you become a source of solidarity and empowerment. You remind us, “we’re (still) in this together.”

You can read the latest updates from our contributors at And it’s not too late to share how you are feeling by submitting your own entry at

Thank you to everyone who has participated.
