Write for Kind Over Matter

Kind Over Matter has always been a place to share stories, I’m just opening its doors a little wider, welcoming more of them to come in, to take off their shoes & make themselves at home.

Being able to share the gifts & stories of others is one of my most favorite things about overseeing KOM. I am both honored & humbled to share so much, to have a platform to share so much…

I’m grateful beyond anything I could ever articulate… being a mama to two under five, having one child with special needs, it’s hard for me to produce as much content as I did during the first two years of KOM’s life. In February 2013, KOM turned 4 years old & that is because of YOU, know this.

Kind Over Matter’s readers are the most awesomest people ever! If you want to read a little more about them, who they are, etc… you can visit the Sponsorship Page.

This is a safe space to pour your heart out to open hearts & minds.

There are 5 ways that you can contribute to Kind Over Matter besides becoming a sponsor.

KOM’s readers respond best to vulnerable (read: powerful) stories & messages. Think Wild-n-Fierce Love. Think Rising Out of the Ashes. Think Stirring Compassion. Think Tear & Goosebump-Inducing Kindness.

I currently have dates open for June – October 2013 but they will go fast! I will be responding to all queries in the order I receive them. Please be patient with my response time!

The Kind Kindred series is full until January 2014! If you sent along a submission query, I will be replying to you soon! Please check out the other series below!
