Become a Ketamine Advocate

Writers:

How has ketamine therapy impacted your life? What have you accomplished since beginning your journey? KWC invites you to submit a personal story, essay, poem, or response to a prompt to be featured on our website and social media. In case you’re stuck on an idea, you can find some writing prompts listed below. ~1500 or fewer words.

Writing – A Few Things We’ve Learned:

Be authentic. The best stories are short, honest, intimate, humble, and full of heart.

Choose just one story. A single story can’t possibly contain the whole scope of your journey, but a deeper dive into a particular experience or aspect can be powerful.

Show us, don’t tell us. For example, think of watching a movie scene play out moment by moment versus listening to a newscaster summarize a news story–the movie creates more emotion and meaning.

Find the heart of your story. Stay close to it. Seek the deeper meaning of the events or turning points in your journey and share them from your heart. Emotional, spiritual, and physical challenges are the lifeblood of good storytelling and something every one of us can relate to.
