Submitting Your Story

Want to share your experience of grief with others? The Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement would love to hear from you!

Your stories is a space where you can read stories, narratives, poems and creative expressions contributed by bereaved individuals who want to share insights from their own grief journey.

Here are some guidelines and ideas around putting together something for Your Stories:

  • You might like to prepare a narrative, reflection, poem or creative expression
  • Try to keep your piece to around one A4 page in length
  • Consider including something that you have learnt along your own grief journey that may be useful to others e.g. strategies, tips, experiences.
