Write-Right Stories Program: “A Letter to My Younger Self”

Do you have an inspirational story to tell about your personal growth? Would you like your story to be published and shared with our more than 5,000 followers? If so, dfoww, Incorporated, would love to showcase your talents through our new Write-Right Stories Program. Each week, we will publish a submitted story from the prompt, “A Letter to My Younger Self,” on our website’s homepage. We are now accepting submissions. What led you to where you are today? Writing reflective stories can not only inspire and teach others but will also help you grow as a writer. When we observe and analyze our thoughts, feelings, and sensations, we gain insight into our personal histories. Being able to put complex ideas into words is a valuable writing skill. We hope this program will encourage you to reflect and become more creative as you practice writing.

If you are interested, please follow the submission instructions below: 

  1. You must write a detailed letter to your younger self. 
    a. Address what you would tell your younger self. Why?
    b. Address what challenges you have faced in your life. How have you overcome those challenges? 
  2. We want you to express your feelings through your words. Pull us into your journey, so readers can imagine what it is like to be you. 
  3. All submissions must contain two photos of yourself: one as a child and one as an adult.
     A $3 donation is required with all submissions. 

All proceeds from this program will help fund the Write-Right Literacy Program. That way, dfoww, Inc. can continue to provide necessary services to the public free of charge. When you feel your story is ready for publication, please go to the submissions page and click submit. Once that is complete, click the yellow PayPal button to donate your $3. Make sure that your name matches up with the donation name so we know how to find you!
