NEW Extended Deadline: November 15th

SpeakYourStory is seeking story submissions for consideration in our first SYS Anthology! Our Anthology will be a collection of creative, enchanting, coffee-table style books curated on specific themes with written stories, photography and artwork that express the same hope, triumph and redemption as the stories on our website.

The theme of our first book in this Anthology is the strength and power of women. We are soliciting your true stories of finding resilience and courage to overcome circumstances that threatened to destroy your will. This book isn’t about what brought you to your knees, but rather about what you called upon to lift you up and carry you through – the part of you that saved you.

Most of us have experienced life events that broke us in some way – from tiny fractures to huge cracks we felt sure we’d never recover from. Yet somehow, we did. We survived. We put the pieces back together, or  decided those broken pieces didn’t serve us and we rebuilt with new material. The stories we want to tell describe how the corner was turned from devastation to redemption. When did you know you’d be okay and what brought you to that place? How did you TRANSFORM?

Our intention is for these stories to provide relief and hope to those who are struggling. We want these stories to inspire our readers, to help them understand that each break actually brings us closer to being whole, and that we all have the power to transform our own lives.

Now for the details…

Your story will need to be original content that gives SYS copyright and the right of first publication. After we’ve published the Anthology, you’ll be free to use your content for any non-commercial purposes. This will all be included in a written contract if your story is chosen.

The deadline to submit stories is Sunday, November 15th.

If your story is written, please send 1,000 words or less. If your story is told through painting, photography, sketches or graphic art – please make sure to send us high res images.

Please Submit Your Story For Consideration! We look forward to reviewing your work!
