Inspiring Story Submission Guidelines | Daily Inspired Life

Story Submission Guidelines ... 

In response to a recent survey Daily Inspired Life readers requested shorter two-minute inspiring stories.   In response to our readers we are calling for submissions for flash, creative non-fiction stories 200-400 words max  …

The Stories We Feature

Your story should be no longer that 400 words and be a real-life, true experience. Your story can be an ordinary moment (or extraordinary)  that caused you to think about yourself or the world around you with new perspective, more hope, more love, possibility or kindness.

The purpose of each piece published in Daily Inspired Life is to spread positivity in regard to the human race as a whole,  AND to create a greater understanding across different cultures and backgrounds.  We want you to share your personal view of the world through your story.    

Daily Inspired Life features stories that inspire people to live their best and to see the best in others.   We want readers to feel more connected to the greater world, promoting the unity and positivity found in humanity.   We want your story to help balance the negative news feed of mainstream media .

Before submitting your story, please read about the mission of the Daily Inspired Life project and take some time to read some of the stories we have already published.  

Here are some ideas for key themes (however please do not limit your creativity to the categories presented here)

  • Inspirational Life Lessons
  • Real Life Hero/Heroine Stories
  • Acts of Human Kindness
  • Spirituality, Mind & Connection
  • Love Romance & Relationship
  • Charity, Money, Funding & Finances
