HerStry is dedicated to empowering women through storytelling. Every month we choose a different theme to help get your writing juices flowing.

It's May. The month of mothers. So this month HerStry is collecting stories about motherhood. It's a big topic and we did that for a reason. Everyone's experience of motherhood is different and we want to capture that. So if you have a story about motherhood, good or bad, we want to read it. 

The Rules: 

  • All stories should be true and about you.
  • Stories should stay between 500-3,000 words.
  • Writers must submit an author photo and short third person bio. 
  • Stories must be submitted in some type of word document. We will not consider PDFs.
  • Simultaneous submissions welcome. Please make sure to withdraw your essay should it get published elsewhere. 
  • HerStry works exclusively with women identify folks to amplify their stories. Please check our website herstryblg.com to see if you are a good fit for us.

Women of color and LGBTQIA writers encouraged to submit.

Payment:

All accepted stories will receive a $20 payment.
