I’ve struggled with some mental health issues for a couple years now, and I’m really into raising awareness and shattering stigma – you know, all that. Well, I’ve had this idea floating around in my head for a while now, but I’ll need some help to make it work.

I want to create an anthology of comic strips, all related to cutting and self-injury. I want real-life stories, and while I have several of my own that I intend to use, I would very much like some more.

I’m trying to approach this subject in a different way than it’s usually portrayed, so I’m not asking for the ‘usual’ self-harm stories. I don’t want stories that actually involve the act of self-harm. I am looking for stories about the impact of self-injury and life for those who do it.

I do ask that all stories be real-life experiences. Please do not submit stories you have heard or made up.

If this project interests you, and you would like to contribute, please send your story/stories to me, Sir-Ichi. All stories will remain anonymous; no one will know that you contributed, or what you contributed.

Thank you so much for your help. I look forward to hearing from you.

What kinds of stories are you looking for?…

So, what exactly do you want me to do?…

Can I submit something that’s already in my gallery?…

What happens to my story after I send it?…

Wait, I’m confused.…

Alright, sure, I could certainly contribute a real-life story as I suffered from it before in the past.

And write it like how it affected your life and stuff. Okey-dokey.
