How does this work?

Once you have uploaded your story, our creative group will evaluate it. If selected for publication on the site, you may be contacted by an editor to help you better shape your story for publication.

We reserve the right not to publish stories for any reason.

Story title & log line

No story will be considered without a title and log line, which is essentially a sentence or two which describes the story. For example, Story Title: ARGO, Log line: The story of a CIA agent who created a fake movie to rescue a group of American hostages out of Iran.

Tell your story in your own way

Your story. Your way. Feel free to document your story using video, audio, pictures, or text in 1,000 words or less. Anything that you find useful in communicating what you are trying to tell. Some useful questions to ask yourself when formulating a story or idea are:

  • What is your "go to" story at a dinner party?
  • What story do your friends and family say best describes you?
  • What is a story that happened to you that you haven't heard anyone else tell before?
  • What story have you meant to ask your relatives about while they are still alive?

Note: We highly recommend text submissions be less than 1,000 words, as we are unlikely to read anything longer.

To add content to your story, choose one of the four media types from above.
