Like a snowflake, no two birth experiences are alike. Unlike a snowflake, birth experiences–with all their emotions and surprises, tears and laughter, pains and joys–make for some mighty interesting stories. That’s why we’re asking you, kind readers, to send us your own birth story. Feel free to get as creative as you want and tell the story in whichever way you like. Our only guidelines are that your entry should be no longer than 1000 words, and the story should indeed be your true birth story–save those sci-fi alien unicorn births for next time, folks!
And since a contest wouldn’t be a contest without a prize, the writer of our favorite birth story will receive:
1. A copy of the awesomely fun Macaroons’ CD, Let’s Go Coconuts. For further proof of why you want this prize, see here.
2. Your story published on Kveller! That’s right, fame and fortune.
Please send your birth stories to firstname.lastname@example.org by a week from today, November 16th. Looking forward to reading your stories!
