Your Stories. Your Voice. Contribute
November 27, 2018
We believe every woman has an important story to tell.
We are almost three months old and a whole lot has changed since we launched. Our community is growing fast, as is our readership and we want to connect with you. Here’s everything you need to know…especially if you have a story you think you’d like to share with us.
Who we are
Two best friends bent on filling the Internet with stories written by women for women. Our primary focus is giving women a place to share stories about the adventures they have had exploring their lives in a variety of ways. Our site features articles about travel, sexual exploration and relationship adventures, spiritual quests, parenting and more. Our main submission requirement: from tone to tale, submissions must be authentic.
People tend to imagine explorers as being male. But we know the world is full of badass adventuresses!
Women are breaking boundaries and investigating new areas of the world every day. They are also boldly navigating the uncharted waters of life as a modern woman. And they have plenty to say.
She Explores Life is a site that encourages women to explore and gives women permission to tell their stories in their own voice.
There are plenty of publications that tell women how to mold their narrative and direct their tone. That’s not our mission.
We dare women to embrace authenticity and share their experiences and discoveries they way they want to. It’s time for the world to hear what women have to say, the way they want to say it!
Our voice is the voice of every woman who writes for us.
We believe women have been edited and directed for too long? We want raw, honest authentic stories. We won’t edit out personality (we do edit for grammar and style). She Explores Life is a home for real stories told by women in their own voices.
Write For Us
She Explores Life is a passion project. At this time we are unable to pay writers, however, we are optimistic that will change in the near future. If you are as excited about this project as we are and would like to contribute, send your story or pitch via e-mail. If you have a story you really want to tell by think, “I’m not a writer.” Well, you are in luck, we are both writers and editors and we can help you create the narrative you want. Just e-mail your idea or rough draft to email@example.com and we will work with you!
The following are some story topics we are particularly interested in right now:
- Travels or outdoor experiences that initiated a shift in your perspective or way of life.
- LGBTQ stories. These could be stories of sexual revelations, queer travel, and others.
- New approaches to health and wellness
- Relationships! Are you in a new relationship? Navigating a change in your current one? Or are you single and dating? Do you have a unique relationship? Tell us about your adventures.
- We want to hear about your exploration into the spiritual world.
These are just some ideas to spark creativity. Check out our contributor’s page for more options.
