“Crooner” by Teresa Moore

Would you like to contribute a personal story to Dare to be Fabulous?

Please read our About page and peruse featured stories before making your submission. (Note that we may not select a story if it is very similar to one we already feature.)

Stories should be written in the first person and relay a true personal experience. A caveat is that no living being was intentionally harmed either physically or emotionally by your actions. After all, fabulous women would never let that happen!

Note that story submissions may be edited for considerations of style, grammar, or length, and that titles may also be altered.


Written story submissions should be between 750 and 1,600 words.


  • Write “Submission:” in the email subject line, followed by your story’s title.
  • At the top of your message, please provide your name, address, telephone number, and email address. (Your contact information will remain private.)
  • Please provide the word count of your story.
  • If your story was previously published (websites and blogs included),  please note where and when. Please also confirm that you hold the copyright and provide full permission to reprint the story.
  • Include a short bio blurb about yourself in two or three sentences (40-70 words). Feel free to include the URL to your website, if you have one.
  • Below your bio blurb, please paste the full text of your written story in 14 pt font.
