Please send submissions to or use the form below to remain completely anonymous.

Simply stated: how art has literally, symbolically, or otherwise saved your life? The “arts” includes all forms – visual, literary, performing, etc. Stories can include encounters with art, or art making. You do not need to be an artist to have been saved by the arts.

Stories will be used on the blog at my discretion, depending on quantity received and based on whether they fit the overall theme and idea presented here. Entries of all lengths will be considered; longer entries may be broken up into more than one post if necessary. All posts may be edited for grammatical errors and clarity.

You may choose to include your first name or post anonymously. However, I do request that you include your location or the location that the story took place at the end of your submission. I would love to know where people are writing from.

Images are encouraged but not required for submission. Please feel welcome to include 1-2 per story.

Please include the following at the very top of your email:
Name: (first only, or indicate you’d like me to post your story as “anonymous”)


By submitting your story you acknowledge and understand that the text and/or images may be used across multiple social media platforms and will be available publicly to be read and shared.

I will do my best to share as many stories as possible.
