      CALL FOR ARTICLES

Is there a story inside of you?

We at Transgender Heaven strive to provide you with a wide range of content. We are currently in need of more contributors amongst our members for new articles.                               

We want your stories, your experiences, and your insight. No one has exactly your perspective except you, and we are looking for fresh perspectives. Maybe you've written for us before and think you don't have anything else to say, but every day is a new experience, possibly a memorable one that might be worth sharing. Maybe you feel no one will understand something you feel or experience, but sometimes there is someone out there thinking the same thing.                                                                                                                           

If you've had trouble in the past, we have a new staffing structure that is moving articles along at a steady pace, thanks to the tireless work of our Resident Editor, Brina MacTavish, so if you have something you'd like to write and share, send it to us through the article submission page, which you will find in the drop down menu under "Author" at the top of the page. If you have questions or concerns, or maybe want to talk to us about an idea you have that you aren't sure about, contact myself or Brina MacTavish and we'd love to help you out.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

Captain Dionysus, Managing Editor

 

As the Resident Editor, it's my responsibility to review all submissions under the article tab. Once approved, it moves to the editing phase where an editor will work with you to prepare it for publication. We're members just like you, sharing in the lifestyle that brings us to this wonderful place. We want to help you share your story. You don't need to be great at writing to tell a story that others will relate too. An editor will help you through the process to publish your story.

What is your story? What makes for a good article?

You are the author of your own story. We all have similarities, and hearing about them helps us to deal with the challenges that we face. How did you arrive at this point in your life, what happened to you in the past, and where are you headed in the future are the basics for most introductory stories. A specific happening and the affect it had on your life is another type of story. Sharing a tragedy or success makes for good reading.

What we look for in an article to publish is one that is roughly 500-750 words long, is factual, relatable, and clean. We aren't looking to delve deeply into politics, religion, sexual exploits, or profanity. Think "Friendly." Make us laugh, or cry, make us aware of something that could happen to any of us, inform us, guide us, warn us, and help us as we face this journey together and on our own.

Writing an article is giving back and can be both scary and exhilarating. Personally, for me it was the opportunity to validate the woman inside and offer her a hand out of the darkness. I'm here to help you tell your story…I hope you do.

Brina MacTavish, Resident Editor

Chase,

You don't have to be a great writer, good writer or even a so-so writer; that's what editors are for. All you have to do is be willing to put your thoughts down in written form. Editors help polish the story you want to share and give it the emphasis you are trying to convey. I'd love to read about your life, and others would, too.

We don't do video as part of the articles, but do include a tasteful picture. I hope to see a story from you soon.

Brina

At the top of the page, to the right, you'll see a heading "Author." under the sub menu is the choice, "New Article." That is where you go to write an article. You save it in draft form until you are done, and then save it for review.

Sabrina, this may be a post from awhile back, but it is still current today. We all have stories to tell. Stories of who we are, and how we got here. And sharing them might just help someone else along their path in life... Hugs

It"s true, Michelle. All of us has stories to tell and by sharing them we may benefit someone from TGH.

I will write an article about my Esprit experience as I did it about Keystone.
