I'm putting together a compilation of stories about why people have left a religion.
This compilation will be published as a book; you'll get publishing credit and a copy of the book in exchange for your story and it's accompanying rights. You'll also get $10 for a story, about 800-2000 words.
The stories must be a)non-fiction and true b)personal written in the first person.
I'll help to edit, format, and compose the stories. The prompts to think of:
What moment lead to you actually leaving religion? What experience, or realization?
What events lead to you deciding to leave your religion?
What were the repercussions- did you feel great, anxious, regret it, rejoin religion, join a new religion, realize you were missing something, etc?
Please write them chronologically. It's a bit awkward, but I can't really say if I'll use a story for sure until I've read it. I will guarantee (and copyright protects you) that I will not use your story without your permission NOR will I copy, rewrite, etc (still in breach of copyright) your story without your permission. This is really a call for people who are already writers, or who want to vent and express themselves as writers about a personal moment that reshaped their lives. This isn't a job to take on hoping to make a bunch of cash for making up a story. It's more about publication and credit.
