THE PROCESS

IN THREE STEPS

The TLDR Version

Think about what it is you want to say. As humans we have infinite stories to tell, but what is the one that you need to tell in order to heal? 
That is the first step.
Think about: 
a) what is your story? 
b) how do you want to tell it? Is it a text, letter, email or other?

Remember, anonymity is key for both writer and recipient. Write what you need to get off your chest in a way that does no harm. 
This is a good time to read our T&Cs and our Community Guidelines.
Whenever you're ready, submit your piece to our website.

This is your time to relax and heal. 

Meanwhile we'll be busy collecting your stories into an anthology with some of the proceeds going to charity. 

THE FULL PLAN

Want all the details? Quite right too. You can find the full plan below.

Step 1

GETTING INVOLVED

Choose your story. What do you most need to get off your chest? Who does this need to be said to and why? How would you send it (letter/email/message etc.)? 

Remember to keep your story anonymous. No names and try to avoid specific landmarks. This site is about allowing you to process your emotions and heal, no naming and shaming please. 

Step 2

DRAFT YOUR STORY

Ensure it is in your own words. You do not have to be Shakespeare in order to write it out. 
Worried about spelling and grammar? You can tick the box asking our editor to look over it, but don't worry, we will never change your story.

Step 3

READ OUR TS & CS

Check out our terms, conditions & community guidelines on what we will and will not accept for publication. This will also tell you how we will use your story.
Any questions? Get in touch via email, Facebook or Instagram.

Step 4

CHECK FOR ANONYMITY

Check that you've made your story anonymous for all those involved. Do not name anyone personally and try to avoid specific landmarks to safeguard your anonymity.

Step 5

SUBMIT YOUR STORY & TALK ABOUT US

Submit your story whenever you're ready. Be sure to pick out an extract to be featured or you can type 'Editor's Choice' into this box. 
Found the process helpful? Please tell others about us online and in real life.

Step 6

GET PUBLISHED & HEAL

The final step is for you to focus on healing. 

Meanwhile, we'll be busy turning your stories into a book. Our current strategy is to self publish through Amazon with a significant chunk of proceeds going to charity.
