My Story Call for Submissions: Standing Up
UPDATED 7/28/11: The My Story Story submission process is now closed. You can now read all of the incredible submissions here.
We're back with a new call for entries for our popular print magazine department, My Story! This time we're asking women and their male supporters around the world to write on the topic of “Standing Up.”
The stories are already rolling in—World Pulse community members are writing about marching in the streets to defend women’s rights in Afghanistan, leading initiatives to distribute sanitary napkins to girls in a Kenyan slum, and taking a stand against racial discrimination in Bermuda. Winners will be published in the Winter/Spring 2012 edition of World Pulse Magazine, themed "Uprising," and the top three submissions will receive a $100 honorarium.
Have you ever stood up for yourself? For someone else? For a cause you believe in? Have you ever gotten back on your feet after being knocked down? Do you have a story about assuming leadership? About keeping integrity in a difficult situation?
Submit your story before July 21 for a chance to be published. The winning story could be yours!
