Tell Your Story

Tell Your Story…

Each one of us has a remarkable story to tell. Your story, whether it be non-fiction, a novel, short story, fairy tale or more, writing it down and having it published will ensure that your story lives on.

We want to hear your story. There are no limitations, no minimum or maximum number of words, no editing, and don’t worry about being a great writer, just tell your story and we will publish it.

We publish essays, interviews, fiction, poetry and… well, whatever you submit. We tend to favor personal writing, but we’re also looking for provocative pieces on political and cultural issues. And we’re open to just about anything. Surprise us; we often don’t know what we’ll like until we read it.

Tell us about your journey after the Sun. Others will want to keep up with what you have been doing for the last 38+ years. Write about your travels, hobbies, work or a review of the best book you have read.

Tell us your stories about your personal remembrances of the Austin Sun – the paper, the people, the times, life in Austin, the articles, photos, music scene and more. We’d love to hear from everyone – writers, editors, photographers, artists, advertisers, typesetters, paste-up and layout staff and anyone else who contributed in any way to the Austin Sun.

Consider including any photos you may have, especially a current head shot of yourself for the article. Images should be at least 300 x 300 pixels and at 72 dpi, but don’t worry as we can size the photos for you if they are larger. Just send them along and we will take care of it for you.

Stories can be emailed to for publication. Authors retain all rights to their submissions. We’d love to hear from you.

As an added treat photographer J R Compton, who was thoughtful enough to record a visual history of the “Sunshine Days” has placed a number of photos online for our viewing. You can admire these photos on his site at J R Compton Sun Photos. Please to not copy any of J R’s photos or post them anywhere else. These are copyrighted images.

Others who would like to exhibit there photos on their own websites are encouraged to do so. We are happy to supply links on this site to your photos.
