Shoutout to the music community! Let us hear from you! Lockdown Lemonade has been honored to be posting stories of survival, tips for getting through these challenging times and ALL kinds of ways to make lemonade out of the lemons we’ve been handed during the pandemic. We are always on the look out for more material to share with the community.

Type up your thoughts & feelings, share some laughs you’ve had, some tears you’ve shed, but most of all, let your community know how YOU’VE learned to make your very special brand of lemonade.

Submissions should be 300 words and will be posted based on approval from the Lockdown Lemonade Committee, who might also do a little editing and/or tweaking to help your work to look its best. For guidelines, questions and other submission details, please contact Julie Zipperer at juliez@far-west.org or Marlynn Block at marlynn@far-west.org.
