We publish all submissions to Virtual Open Mic. You can write your story, share a video, or record a podcast. 

Excessively long stories, graphic content (including photos), and stories containing profanity or slurs will not be accepted. If your story is rejected, you’ll be given a chance to edit and re-submit.

You will receive an email when your story is posted, usually within a week of submission.

If your story includes messages that you think would help others and you’d like to be considered for Burn Support Magazine, you can also submit a resource.
