"It Happened to Me" - Tell us Your Story

Hello there!

As part of our one year anniversary celebration, we wish to introduce a new column titled ‘it happened to me’.  We will give opportunity to some of us who have exceptional life experiences that can teach, instruct, or motivate, to share such on our blog. To participate, you don’t have to be an awesome writer; you just have to have an interesting story that teaches a life lesson. As such, we will be calling for submission every last week of the month, and we will choose two out of each batch of stories to publish for that month.   

Rules for writing

1.     Entry must be between 800 – 1500 words
2.     Must be true life stories. No fiction please.

Guidelines for Submission

1.     All submissions should be made to reallifewithkani@gmail.com. The subject of the mail should read ‘it happened to me’.

2.     Please submit your entries in this format
·        A Bio of not more than 50 words
·        Your name (or pseudonym)
·        Contact details (optional)
·        Your story
·        A portrait of you (optional)
·        A link to your website, blog or social network page (optional)

3.     Paste your story in the body of the email. Please don’t send it as an attachment.

4.     No anonymous submissions will be considered, please use a pseudonym if you do not want to use your real name.

5.     The country of residence of the writer must be included.

6.     Deadline for first submission is the 7th October. The selected writers will be contacted by the 14th of October.

Please note that only two stories will be selected out of all the submissions and published subsequently on www.reallifewithkani.com with mention to the writer.


This is not a writing competition; the selection will be made in consideration to the stories not the writing style.

I look forward to reading your stories.

If you have any questions regarding this, please comment below or send a mail to reallifewithkani@gmail.com.

I am excited to be sharing this platform with you, Thank you.
