We’re always open to submissions for AbortionChat.
All we ask is that you keep an open mind and that your story has a purpose other than to start a confrontation. We’re here to spread grey area, not to make things black and white. If you’d like, you can submit something for the week based on the #AbortionChat topic of the month, or go a little broader. The choice is yours!
We’re actively seeking submissions surrounding (but not limited to):
Your experience with abortion and/or pregnancy (Did you have one? Did someone close to you have one? How did/do you cope?), sexuality, your form of birth control, relationship dynamics (healthy or unhealthy), sexual education, masturbation/being comfortable in your own skin, healthy sex dynamics, religion and its effect on sex or sexuality, etc.
The list is long, and there are lots of stories we’d like to share.
If you’re interested in submitting a piece here are some suggestions:
*Try keeping the piece under 1,500 words. These days people have the attention span of a flea. The more cohesive you can tell your story, the better.
*Feel free to use pictures (see attention span). Pictures must be your own. (We don’t really feel like getting sued today…or ever.)
*Include an author bio, please! Even if your piece will be anonymous, we can work it out with you.
*If you would like your piece tagged in anyway, please include the tags, too. Typically, it’ll have your name, whether the piece is ProChoice or ProLife, and then whatever else you deem fit
*We can’t pay you (sorry, the person running the blog works two jobs to upkeep her lavish lifestyle of rent, car payments, student loans, hospital bills, and dog food.)
*Read through the archives, see what we’re looking for.
When your piece is ready, send the email (sans attachment) to:
AbortionChat (at) gmail (dot) com
If you’d like to use a picture, please say so in the email. If you’d like to remain anonymous, we can work with that, too.
If we’re interested we’ll send you a confirmation email as well as asking for your pictures. Once we have everything set up, we’ll send you the date that your piece will post.
Thanks for submitting to AbortionChat, we hope to hear from you soon.
