In addition to personal stories, we are looking for people to talk about how Psychology has influenced their lives, perspectives, emotions, and so on. Here are a few examples of this: a popular theory and your opinion on it, the science behind how our brains do what they do, how people can utilize different behavior changing techniques to their advantage, etc.
-Writing submissions should be between 500-1,200 words in length.
-Please include trigger warnings for sensitive material.
-Think about how others can relate to your story/topic. Ask yourself, what can the readers take away from this piece?
-For psychology articles: What theories or concepts interest you the most? What have you implemented or changed in your own life? Who is/are your favorite Psychologists and why? What parts of Psychology excite you the most, and what would you want people to learn about? How can we alter our behavior and thought patterns? How does creativity play a role in mental health? What is the science behind some of the most misunderstood disorders? How can we make mental health/illness fun & easy to learn about? Etc.
-For personal stories: What experiences have changed your life and why? What do you want to share with other people? What was the overall lesson that you learned? Etc.
-A good story, whether it’s personal or educational, will grab the reader’s attention, introduce the topic, and have a clear narrative.
