Share your story


There are few things as powerful as knowing our experiences are valid — that we’re not the only ones who feel a certain way. If you want to help, consider sharing your story – be it a challenge you face, one you’ve overcome, or even just a few words of encouragement – and letting others know they are not alone.


Some particulars:

  1. Submission doesn’t guarantee publication, but we’ll do our best to fit everyone in.

  2. Your submission can run anonymously if you like; please protect the privacy of anyone mentioned in your story by not using their real name.

  3. There’s no set word limit, but please try to keep it under 1000 words or so.

  4. If you have any other questions or concerns, just ask!
