No One Talks About This Stuff

By Kat Brown

15 writers on their experience of infertility, childlessness, baby loss and almost motherhood

Monday, 13 June 2022

Do you want to share your story? We're open for submissions!

No One Talks About This Stuff is 100% funded! Nearly 700 people helped to do this in less than five months. Thank you. We can't wait to bring the book to life.

For now, we want to hear from you. Who and what is missing from the conversations about infertility, childlessness, and baby loss? We're looking for pitches for essays of between 1500-5000 words to fill the last slots in the book, and will pay £200 per essay. 

This book is a support group where writers share their experience, and comfort, to readers going through their own challenges. Your writing will help them to feel seen in a way that perhaps wasn't available to us going through this. 

Send a pitch outlining what you would want to write about (no finished work, please) and a short author bio to by 12pm BST on Monday June 20. The deadline for filing copy will be mid-July. Please take a look at the book's 'about page' on Unbound for an idea of the writers and subjects we will be covering.

This book is not a trauma-mining exercise. Above all, please look after yourself and consider whether you are ready and able to write about your experience. If you have already contacted Kat with an idea, it will very likely be in our spreadsheet, but feel free to write again.

We can't wait to read your emails, and thank you for sharing your stories with us.

Thank you, Kat Brown (editor) and Fiona Lensvelt (commissioning editor, Unbound)
