write about caregiving and share your story with our community

We focus exclusively on providing content by, for, and about caregivers.

You’re a caregiver if you…

  • are supporting a loved one through an acute illness, like cancer
  • are supporting a loved one in recovery after an accident
  • provide support for a loved one who has a chronic illness or disability, like diabetes, mental illnesses, or autism
  • help an elderly relative or friend with household chores, the bills, and other tasks
  • are a professional caregiver in a home, nursing home, hospital, or other facility
  • volunteer to support the ill, disabled, or elderly
  • have ever done any of the things mentioned above

We welcome a wide variety of artwork and writing for publication on The Caregiver Space

Some of our authors are experts because they have degrees, certifications, and professional experience. Others are experts through lived experience. Many have both. We’re interested in honest stories with strong voices.

This is an inclusive space. We welcome all viewpoints and share stories that reflect a wide variety of opinions and beliefs. We each share our personal story without tearing down others. Your voice is welcome here.

We welcome…

  • Nonfiction, essays, memoir, prose, poetry, interviews
  • Photography, illustrations, and video art
  • Reviews of books, TV shows, and movies

Topics that have been on our radar lately include…

  • Life as a sandwich generation caregiver
  • What it’s like to be a young caregiver
  • Caring for someone without a diagnosis
  • Planning for the future while caregiving
  • Surviving on a fixed income
  • Juggling work and caregiving
  • Practicing self-compassion

…but we welcome submissions on any topic related to life while caregiving.

Please review our author guidelines before submitting.

Submissions can be sent to cori@thecaregiverspace.org (with your submission in the body of the email) or submitted online.

Deadlines: Rolling, submissions reviewed each Monday.
