Submission Guidelines

"Crooner" by Teresa Moore

“Crooner” by Teresa Moore

Dare to be Fabulous is open to new story submissions.

Your story 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!

Have you ever done something that you look back on and think, “wow, that was really brave of me,” or, “good for me, I did it!”? Something personally daring that gave you a sense of joy, or relief, or surprise, or empowerment? Something that helped you open up? Or feel all the more true to yourself? Maybe all of the above?

Please peruse this website to familiarize yourself with the theme before making a submission.

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


Written submissions can be any length up to 2,000 words.


  • Write “Submission:” in the email subject line, followed by your story’s title.
  • At the top of the message, please provide your name, address, telephone number, and email address.
  • Please write the word count of your story
  • If your story has been previously published (websites and blogs included), please note where and when. Please confirm that you hold the copyright and provide full permission to reprint your story.
  • Include a short blurb about yourself in two or three sentences. Feel free to include a pertinent website for more information.
  • Below the bio blurb, please paste the full text of your written story in 14 pt font.
