Wow, I’m a published author! I submitted a micro-memoir to this project and it was accepted. It’s barely a paragraph long, but definitely a true story.

Ourselves: 100 Micro Memoirs book cover

Ourselves: 100 Micro Memoirs is a celebration of real life. One hundred authors give voice to the raw, chaotic and joyful spectrum of what it means to be human.

Each micro memoir is unique in its scope, but the collection resonates with threads of shared experience across cultures and generations.

In 750 words or fewer, these carefully crafted stories invite the reader into the histories we often edit—or don’t tell—about ourselves.
