How to Submit Your Story To have your story included as a part of Miscarriage Matters Inc. book and blog, please follow these instructions:
1. Complete form below.
2. Write down the story of your pregnancy and loss. You can make it as short or as long as you would like, as simple or as detailed as you feel comfortable with. Your story may be slightly edited for grammar/spelling, spacing and format. We may also edit profanity, at our discretion.
3. At the beginning or end of your story, please include the following information:
*Your first name, your lost child/children’s name(s), and their date(s) of birth and death
*Your email address.
*The categories that are available for your particular stories will be miscarriage, stillbirths, or early infant loss. Please tell us which type of loss your story reflects.
*Tell us how you found out about us! Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, or search engines.
3. Include a photo of your face. Please make sure the file is at least 2×3 inches and in JPG format. We will be adding text to the bottom that says, “I am the survivor of ______.” Please let us know what you would like in the blank for example: “I am the survivor of miscarriage,” or “I am the survivor of stillbirth.” Note: Please make sure the photo only includes the author of the story . While we realize that there is a father behind every story, we really want to keep the photos to single faces. If the father would like to add his own story and photo that would be wonderful and we would encourage and welcome them to share their own story from a fathers perspective. (Please do not include any pictures unless it is a head shot. We are unable to use photos of babies, family, pets, material items.)
4. Deadline for story submissions - September 1, 2018 (Must be submitted by this date to guarantee your story will be published in our 2018 book.)
