SHATTER YOUR IMAGE

In our lives, people tell us who we should be. We gain the notion we could be happier by trying to be someone else. But we don't have to be perfect for the world, we just have to be ourselves.

Shatter Your Image is an anthology from writers telling their stories through fiction and poetry. Stories of being proud of who we truly are, that tragedy and dark moments brought us to a light we didn't think possible. Stories of accepting what some call flaws as cause for celebration. Stories that invite us all to stop changing for others, shatter our image and realize our beauty.


In order to increase awareness for the non-profit REALIZE YOUR BEAUTY, let's create an anthology of poetry and short stories. This collection will hear from authors and new writers alike from various backgrounds, ethnicities, and storied histories to celebrate how we all "shattered our image."

Hearing from a diverse group of writers, Shatter Your Image will provide a platform for people to have their voices heard. To further benefit the non-profit, all proceeds from sales of this anthology will be donated to the non-profit Realize Your Beauty.
