Blood into Ink and Whisper and the Roar are looking for survivors to share their stories, hope and light in an interview.
At Blood into Ink and Whisper and the Roar, our curators, collective members and contributors have all opened their hearts and souls to share their stories of survival. Now, we would like to hear from you, our readers, and what makes you a survivor.
I cannot be the only one who watches people walk past and wonder what shaped them, wonder why they get out of bed in the morning and what I could learn from them. When I first joined Blood into Ink and Whisper and the Roar I wasn’t sure if I was allowed to call myself a survivor. In comparison to other members, I had hardly been to hell and back. Yet, I have been shown that ‘survivor’ isn’t a trophy you fight for in a competition, it isn’t bestowed nor taken away, it isn’t a label. It is a mindset. It is the desire to keep enjoying the taste of air and the sound leaves make in the wind. It is the drive to live through midnight and morning. In a simpler sense, if you believe you fought to be where you are today either against another or yourself, you can say you survived and will continue to.
If you would like to be interviewed about your story, please express your interest by emailing the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Your name/pen name or your wish to remain anonymous
- Why you are interested in being interviewed about your story/being a survivor
Once you have expressed your interest, you will be emailed interview questions to answer.
We look forward to hearing from you.
