Please consider these guidelines.
1) Your story is anonymous by default -- please honor privacy for other people in your story, too (i.e., avoiding using names or references that would identify someone).
2) This website collects personal STORIES -- it's not for debate, for argument or for explaining your point of view. Tell us what happened that was painful, memorable, exhilarating, or thought-provoking.
3) Life is complicated. It's OK to submit more than one story. But ... Three is the limit. We want to hear from many different people.
4) THANK YOU for focusing on your experience, and the feelings that resulted. Speak from your heart rather than your head, and readers will respond in kind.
