Welcome! Thank you for sharing your story/pictures. Here are a few guidelines and rules to follow:
The story must have happened in the last 18 years*
All stories must be written by adolescents*
Be open to edits! By submitting the story you agree to editorial suggestions. Specify if you do not wish to have editorial suggestions. You also agree to have your work published.
Make sure your story has a purpose!When on vacation did you learn something, have a new experience, or meet new people? Tell a story others will be interested in reading, and remember stories do not have to be written as essays.
Add detail, but no rambling! You want your story to inspire, but too much detail can make a story tedious to read. Each story should be about 1- 3 pages on google docs.
Yes, you can submit pictures with stories
Changing Names/ Times… it is perfectly okay to change names and times to respect people’s privacy, but make sure the events in your story actually happened.
Have enthusiasm! No one should be forced to write, so only write if you want to!
* If you are an adult writing about a travel experience from when you were a child, please specify what year the story took place, and it will be put in the Past Stories section.
