Readers Share Their Stories: Submission Guidelines

I believe that it is important for trauma survivors to have their voices heard. I encourage survivors, and loved ones of survivors, to email me your personal stories at

Please let me know if you want me to share your story on my blog page, or keep it confidential. If you’d like to share your story with my readers, please let me know what name you would like me to use.

Please try to keep the length of your story to 1,000 words or less. Please include the name of your country with your submission.

Please copy and paste, or type, your story in the body of your email, as I will not open email attachments.

Thank you!
