Tell Your Story

Do you have a story to tell? 

We're always on the hunt for great stories to share on Swearer Sparks. Here are a few ways to see your story on our website:

  • Pitch us a story. Send us an email describing your story in 250 words or less and we'll be in touch soon. We're looking for stories with a strong narrative (features interesting characters and clearly-defined moments in their lives), relevance (explores social change), and authenticity (true story, real emotions). So don't just tell us who you are and what you do - help us understand why and what makes this story unique? No need to be formal; just describe your story as you would to a friend over a cup of coffee.

  • Write a blog post. If you're part of a program, research project, class, or club at Brown University that explores themes of social change, we'd love to hear your perspective. Please send us an email with your name and a brief description of your current work to get on our blog schedule.

  • Share media. If there's a great video, audio piece, photo slideshow, or written story about you that's already out there in the world, send us an email with the link so we can add it to our story page!

If you're interested in producing your own great stories, here are a few resources to help you get started.

Happy storytelling!
