Personal Insights: We want to hear YOUR stories in YOUR words

Personal Insights: We want to hear YOUR stories in YOUR words

Irish Examiner readers are being asked to contribute to a new digital initiative on irishexaminer.com called Personal Insights.

As part of the Personal Insights initiative we are asking readers, creative writing groups and writing enthusiasts in general to share personal essays chronicling an experience which has impacted their lives and any learnings from that life experience they would like to share with a wider audience.

The essays should be sent directly to the executive editor for news and digital, Dolan O’Hagan, at dolan.ohagan@examiner.ie for consideration.

Please note all submissions should be given the subject line ‘Personal Insights submission’ to ensure they are picked up and should include any related imagery and a contact telephone number.

Only submissions which meet the Irish Examiner’s own strict journalistic, ethical and legal guidelines will be considered for publication.

The Irish Examiner reserves the right to edit submissions in line with those guidelines and before publication direct contact will be made with the person who has submitted the content.

No payment will be made for submissions and our decision as regards publication is final.

Our goal is to publish one submission per week and use all our powers to make sure it is seen by as wide an audience as possible.

We look forward to reading your stories.
