We are looking for females (of all ages) to get involved in our ‘Dear Younger Self’ project.
‘Dear Younger Self’ is a project that The Sister Mums are working on, where we will be collecting as many letters/poems as possible to raise funds for charity. In order to get involved you must identify as female. The letter (or poem) must be between 300-1500 words, and touch on an experience (or period in life) where you once felt low, but are now able to see the brighter side of the situation. You could touch on multiple stages in life, multiple scenarios, or focus on just one. The deadline is August 1.
Whether you’re a professional writer, or haven’t written anything in a while, we want your letters. We will edit the letters before publishing (fixing any spelling mistakes, but not deleting/changing your words), to remove any pressure that you feel to make your submission perfect. It’s your story, and there’s no wrong way to express it. Please don’t be worried to share your story.
There is an option to be anonymous, however we would prefer names, or nicknames. Still, no pressure.
Our aim is to publish the letters to help females heal from their pasts, whilst giving a positive voice to young girls worldwide, that feel like they’re not being heard. We’ve been there, and probably done that, and it’s important to ensure young ladies are aware that they are not alone. Whilst we remind ourselves of the same thing. Including a few tips on how to get to the brighter side of the tunnel. And a final reminder that females are so strong!
