Are you interested in submitting your story?


One of the main reasons Mama In Darkness exists is to create a community and what better way than by sharing our personal experiences?  If you’d like to tell us about how mental illness affects your life, send me an email at [email protected] or find me on facebook. In your email, let me know what you want to write about and we can work together to get it going!

The details

Post length

Guest posts currently have no requirements on length, so be as brief or long-winded as you want. Some of us don’t need much to get the message across.  Some need a whole backstory for anything to make sense.  Whatever you’ve got, I don’t mind!


I’ll supply the images if you don’t have any personal ones you’d like to share. If you are willing to share a picture of yourself (and even your family), though, that would be wonderful.

Previous experience

If you’re not a writer, get in touch anyway because I’ve got tons of ideas on how we can share your story.  Once we get going, I’ll help however you might need to make sure your story gets out there.  If that’s coming up with prompts, creating interviews, taking dictation, or something else, we can make it happen.  And if you’re worried about silly mistakes, it’s alright. I’ll review it, proofread, and work with you to make any changes necessary.

So, get in touch and get writing!  Let’s build that community and show the world that they’re not alone.
