The Kairos Network Blog happily accepts work from other writers concerning their experiences with caregiving for elders or the dying. General explorations of death and bereavement are also welcome here, as well as cultural attitudes toward the same. If you are someone who works in some way with the transition we call dying, your reflections and stories are welcome here. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submission Guidelines: Submissions to Kairos Network Blog should reference heartfelt, personal accounts of experiences you have had as an eldercare worker, hospice worker or family caregiver. They should explore the thoughts and inner responses you have had to your experience in this role. This includes creative work such as stories, poetry submissions as well as essays. It could also include some clinical discussions if there is a personal point of view in the content, or they reference a personal accomplishment. Links to other internet material should not have any promotional intent. They must be informative and only included for the purposes of elucidating your points or content. Submissions should be well constructed, in good English and mindful of spelling conventions. They should be less than 1200 words. Titles for your piece can be suggested, but final titles will be chosen by the editor with your approval.
Please include a very short bio with your submission (two to three lines max).
