Read on how to enrich your life by purpose, i.e. to find depth and, a reason to get out of bed each morning, your own Ikigai.
Vacation time is almost here and so is our monthly writing theme. Share an interesting travel story and get published on Women’s Web!
As You Write It is back this April and the writing theme for this month is “Travel Story”. Write to us about an interesting incident that happened to you on your travels. Did you meet someone intriguing? Did you discover something unexpected? Did you try out something amazing? Tell us your travel story!
Where to send: Send in your story to email@example.com with ‘Travel Story’ in the subject line, and your story as a word/txt attachment. Do include the name we should use if we publish it, and a brief introduction to yourself (2-3 lines) in the mail.
By when: Please send in your stories by Apr 15th, i.e. this Sunday. The 5 best stories will be published on Women’s Web the following week, i.e. Apr 16th onwards.
– The material should be previously unpublished elsewhere. (Copyright stays with you and you’re free to subsequently publish it elsewhere).
– Keep it between 250 and 600 words.
Each entry chosen for publishing on Women’s Web gets a diary/writing pad made of handmade paper courtesy prishth. prishth focuses on paper products and has also forayed into jewellery made with paper. The cloth material that has been used as the cover of the diaries gets its colours from natural dyes.
Women's Web is a vibrant community for Indian women, an authentic space for us

Hi Tan – yes, they can. Please send them as separate jpeg images though and not embedded in word files and try to keep the total attachment under 1 MB.
Does publishing in my personal blog count as being previously published?
