Connected Stories Project



I have an idea. Let’s create something together. A story that connects our voices. One line at a time.

Here’s how it works

Send me one original sentence. I will gather all of your words and weave them together, creating a story that is about all of us. Each story will have a different theme and eventually there will be a collection of community stories. The end result will be true community connection.

Each story will be published and anyone who contributed will be recognized as a contributing author. As a contributor, you’ll be first to know when it’s finished and you’ll receive the opportunity to purchase the book at a discounted rate.

The ground rules:

  • no swears or adult content (hey, I like swears too but I’d like to keep this open for kids to participate)
  • no hate speech
  • follow the theme in whatever that means to you – it’s best if you don’t use the theme word but instead capture its essence
  • include your name as you’d like to be recognized (first name or anonymous is totally fine)
  • include the City and Country where you currently reside – there will be a map to demonstrate how far we’ve connected
  • include an email address so that I can let you know when the book is ready.


The Connected Stories Project: Beauty is in the writing phase. Thanks to the over 100 contributors from 11 different countries!

*note that due to unforeseen circumstances, the publishing date has been extended and we are hoping to have the book ready to purchase by spring 2023
