How did the dead do it?
Managing editor for the Great Lakes Review, Meredith Counts, along with co-founding editor Lisa Schamess have launched a literary blog devoted to the housekeeping practices of our dearly departed.
“When people die we can still clearly picture the way they did things,” the new blog says. “We don’t remember our departed in a vacuum, but in motion, in particular. We can still see and sense ‘how they did it’ years after the doer’s deaths.”
The site is seeking essays 250 words or less focusing on one task or series of related tasks as particularly executed by people we’ve lost to death but still clearly see living.
