Contribute to Survival Over Surrender

We all have a story to tell.

Survival Over Surrender is a growing resource for individuals who have become victims of health, relationships, violence, natural disaster or circumstance and made the choice to survive by any means necessary. We feature writers, poets, artists, and photographers regardless of level of experience in their medium. Their stories of despair and hope, loss and growth, pain and power are what connect us and inspire us to keep choosing survival every day.

General Submission Guidelines:

We publish human stories in various formats in the categories of health, relationships, natural disasters, violence, circumstance, or creative inspiration. Please, no matter what category you are contributing to or medium you are submitting in, we value vulnerability, honesty, and powerful imagery. Please try to keep submissions between 500 and 2,500 words.

Please resize images for web (min 1500 pixel width, 72 dpi, no files larger than 500kb).
