I will not accept stories that espouse violence, hatred, racism, pornography, foul language, or bullying.
The strength of this Platform of Stories is, of course, its stories! I welcome story submissions from Storytellers around the world. I’m convinced that everyone has at least one good story to share! All we need to do is craft it into a proper and readable format. A helpful hint: Your story should begin with an Introduction, which leads to the Body, and ends with the Conclusion. It’s really that simple!
So, you’ve got this great story to tell! But the thought of writing it fills you with uncertainty. Here’s the solution. Speak your story aloud. Maybe even record it. Once you’re satisfied with the sound of your story, write it down and give it a name! Edit it as needed until you’re ready to submit it. We’ll call this your rough draft. Keep your story in the 350-500 word range. You can consider longer stories later as you gain experience, not to mention an audience.
“Been there, done that?” Then you’re probably already comfortable submitting your story for consideration. Keep your story in the 500-2,500 range. While longer stories might satisfy your creative urge, many newspaper and magazine re-publishers are more apt to publish shorter stories given their printing and distribution expenses.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMISSION
Complete the “Submit Your Story” form below, including all required information. Submit ONLY the first 100-150 words of your story, in English, please. I’ll respond with thoughts about the direction of your story. Your story MUST BE YOUR OWN ORIGINAL WORK. Story submission is FREE. If I decide to publish your story online, that is also FREE. Republication of your story is also FREE. Naturally, no work proceeds without your agreement and pre-publication approval of your final story. I look forward to hearing from you and, hopefully, publishing your story on this Free Worldwide Platform of Stories!
