Hello all, and welcome to another school year!
If you have not yet listened to the welcome episode of our Share Chair Podcast, my name is Ana, and I will be the editor for writing submissions on the Elevate Empathy blog. Isabel (our photographer and art editor) and I are so excited to launch this part of our program and to see creative work, created by our listeners, that enables us to further elevate empathy!
Since this is our first time doing this, here are a few notes:
- Anyone – regardless of age, location, etc. – is welcome to submit their art or writing that relates to empathy and/or the spirit of the Share Chair podcast..
- At the end of each month, we will release submitted pieces for publication (on the website and possibly our Instagram).
- For that matter, we are looking for all types of creative pieces. For writing, I would be happy to see personal narratives, blog post-style entries, short fiction, poetry, excerpts from a longer work, or anything else that your heart desires.
- There is a chance that edits will need to be made to your creative work before it can be published, so please provide either an email or a phone number that you check regularly on the submission form so our editors can get in contact with you if we need to.
The theme? EMPATHY. How do you live it? How do you see it? How do you express it? Interpret that in any way you like, and create something that speaks to you.
If you have any questions, you can email our team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing what you create!
