Call for Submissions: DIRECT IMPACT (visual & literary)



The Storytellers Alliance presents:

A creative anthology of YOUR stories.
Real people. Real life.
Everyone has a story … what’s yours?

What’s Your Story is now accepting visual and literary submissions for the theme: Direct Impact

The theme of Direct Impact was created to open the conversation about perspective and healing—as individuals and as a society. Each one of us has been impacted—in some way—by all that’s transpired this year. The Storytellers Alliance wants to encourage you to keep creating and using expressive arts as a pathway to healing.

You may be a first responder, an essential worker, a teacher, or a parent trying to navigate this new normal. Maybe you played a role in the protests, or your small business was destroyed in a riot. Perhaps you lost someone to COVID or violence, or you are a survivor yourself. Although we are collectively living through the same events, our lives and experiences have been uniquely impacted.

What’s Your Story? How have YOU been impacted?

The Storytellers Alliance designed What’s Your Story as a platform to provide an opportunity for you to share your own voice and unique perspective through creative non-fiction (CNF), poetry, fiction, prayer, essay, or visual storytelling.

These are YOUR stories, YOUR perspective, YOUR visions, and YOUR experiences.

Factors considered for publication will be adherence to guidelines, artistic originality, craftsmanship, and excellence. Submissions can be literary or visual works by emerging or established artists.

There is NO FEE to submit.
