Last year "Stronger Than You" was created for survivors of Domestic Assault to come forward and tell their stories. We did this because Wattpad has noticed that several works of fiction misconceive and romanticize domestic assault and abuse. This year, we are doing it again, teaming up with several other profiles to spread awareness about this issue.
Throughout September and October, Dangerouslove will be compiling a collection of real-life accounts called "Stronger Than You", where users may submit stories and give advice anonymously if they wish about how they survived and overcame domestic abuse. This collection is open to all, regardless of culture, age, gender or sexuality.
Not only that, but the leaders of said profiles will also submit articles on examples of this romanticization that they constantly see, and how wrong this is/how to correct it.
If you wish to participate, then please continue to read.
1. Be Respectful
This is a very sensitive subject, and will be dealt with as such. Any comments that are insensitive, obscene and disrespectful; will be removed and the user muted. We are serious about this. There will be no bashing the narrators, as they are sharing their narratives with you, and want to help raise awareness on how to stop this.
2. Ask Questions/Comment
One of the key ways to learn something is to ask questions. As such, we are not stopping you from asking questions on certain subjects you need clarity on. Being intentionally impolite will not be tolerated.
3. Be Truthful
There are diverse types of Domestic Assault tales out there, and many of them will really be heartbreaking. Unfortunately, we feel is necessary to tell you all that false stories will not be tolerated. Before they are posted, the stories will be read by a member of the Wattpad personnel, and we kindly ask that you do not makeup stories just to be included in the book. This would be really upsetting to those who are pouring their heart and soul into their honest narratives.
Please send the following to us via this form. No links to books created, nor will we accept PM's this year. We do this to keep everything organized.
❋ Submission Timeline: October 1st to October 31st
❋ Entries must be no more than 2.5k words in length and in any language you please. We kindly ask though, that you enter what language it is, so we can translate it for non-speakers
