Submit your love stories to ‘Share Your Love’

Canadian artist Colleen Baran invites everybody to send their love stories to ‘Share Your Love’. Please pass on!

What kind of love stories?
All true stories of real life love are welcome! I'm looking for the full range of love stories. Deep and passionate love, overwhelming or soft warm love, comfy or conflicted love. Stories of first kisses and first sweethearts. Finding your soul mate. Falling in love or even falling out of love. Secret heady crushes or mad flings.

Stories of how you felt, sweet notes left on pillows, impassioned letters. All sincere stories of love are welcome!

Stories needn't be poetry or novels (shouldn't be actually), simply honest and sincere stories of a real love. Because love is both universal and personal and everybody loves. They could be like a story told over coffee or drinks or confided in to your best friend.

1) Name (very optional) or Initials (also optional)
2) Sex
3) Age
4) Country (needed) and City (optional)
5) Title (optional)
6) Your story (a single line to a few paragraphs)

All languages are welcome! Because the world is full of love! Non-English stories should come with a rough (at least) English version.

Submissions can be mailed or emailed. CLOSED DEADLINE

* Email to info@colleenbaran.com with the subject line 'Share Your Love'. Stories should be pasted into the body of the email- No attachments please.

You can also 'snail mail' your love stories
* Snail Mail to
Colleen Baran, Attn: Share Your Love
PO Box 339
10688 King George Hwy
Surrey BC
V3T 5B6 Canada

Questions? Quite welcome- email info@colleenbaran.com with the subject line 'share your love'.

Stories to be used in: Colleen Baran's 'Love Letter Series', an artist book project and in future exhibitions. Full credit is given to all 'non-anonymous' stories. Complete anonymity to all anonymous ones.
*Submitted stories may be reproduced in all publications and media.

Share Your Images of Love on Flickr

"a sweet day" by Curious Bird.

I've started a new Flickr Group 'Share Your Love' devoted to images of love. All images of things you love or that speak of love are welcome! Share your drawings, paintings, scans of sweet love notes, children’s drawings and doodles made while daydreaming, photos or your sweetheart!

Join here ! It is a public group- because everybody loves.

(This project is not part of my call for stories, just a lovely place for images of love.)

Share Your Love!- soon to come!

Welcome to Share Your Love!

I've posted 'Share Your Love', my call for stories of love, on my blog www.SeeSeeBe.blogspot.com but find that the call is quickly buried! So rather then push it up OR repost it many times, I've started 'Share Your Love' to host the project and it's call.

So I'll be cross-posting related news, calls, etc on both sites but this one will hold 'love story only' content (condensed love) whereas www.SeeSeeBe.blogspot.com will continue to be 'a little bit of everything'.
