For this section, we accept personal essays — "family stories," if you will — of any length. Just write what's in your heart and send it to us. 

We also accept small collections of photographs and sound recordings. Just upload them and tell us a little about why they matter to you.

We regret that The Bitter Southerner does not yet have sufficient budget to pay contributors to our Folklore Project. But if your submission is accepted, it will be treated with respect and broadcast to a growing audience.
