To Raise Awareness to stop the abuse
1. Short Stories And Poetry ~ Any story that you are comfortable writing about some form of abuse.|
2. Stories may be new or old and must discuss abuse in some manner whether it be: emotional, physical, verbal, bullying, or sexual. The goal is to raise awareness that it exists and silence enables it to continue.
3. Please limit your story to 2000 words or less and post the word count with your entry.
4. Rating: May have some graphic content but it is not necessary. Abuse is not a beautiful topic and we are trying to raise awareness while not being offensive either.
5. Please submit in bitem format. (If you are uncertain, see "How to Post in a Forum & Post Links" for assistance)
6. Only one submission only per entrant.
