Storybit featured on Tangled Routes

Tangled Routes is an international project, which seeks to facilitate the sharing of stories of people who migrate.  They are currently hosting a competition and welcome personal stories, poetry, photos, and videos that speak to the migrant, refugee and/or diaspora experience.  Submissions will be eligible to win prizes up to $150 in story and video categories and $100 in storybit and photo categories.  This opportunity is open to individuals who identify as migrant or refugees, or whose life has been shaped in some way by migration.

To share your story, here are the four options to choose from:

1. Story Submission: Applicants are encouraged to submit stories under 700 words. Submissions can be in prose or poetry.

2. Storybit Submission: Storybits are short mini-stories or poems. They must be under 100 words and include the framework “I have , I am, I will.”

3. Photo Submission: Photos should be high-resolution, but no larger than 15MB. Please include your name, location, date, and a caption. Entries must be submitted electronically in a .jpeg .jpg, or.png form.

4. Video Submission: Video submissions can be a maximum of 5 minutes, though 2-3 minutes is recommended. Any format that can be uploaded to is accepted.

The extended deadline to submit your story is July 15, 2016
