WordPress.com Storytellers 2019 Announcement

Every year since 2015, #WeAllGrow Summit has hosted six incredibly fearless mujeres to share their stories on the Storytellers stage. With their stories of courage, resilience, leadership, generosity, and growth they made us feel compassion, empathy, empowerment, sisterhood, y mucho más deeply in our souls.

As we celebrate the power of Latinas as the driving force in this country at #WeAllGrow Summit 2019, this year’s Storytellers will be bold, loud and powerful!

We’re thrilled to introduce WordPress.com as our official Storytellers sponsor for #WeAllGrow Summit 2019!

DO ANYTHING

What would you do if you could do anything? WordPress.com helps people turn their great ideas into better realities - whether it's chronicling their travels, starting a new business, writing a news site, or sharing their passion. During #WeAllGrow Summit 2019, our Storytellers will share their “Do Anything” stories and show us how the feeling of limitless possibility drives people to change the world.

We’re so excited to welcome a new group of fantastic Storytellers, and that could be YOU! Are you ready to become a beloved #WeAllGrow Storyteller?

THE DETAILS

The six selected Storytellers will attend #WeAllGrow Summit and Wellness Day 2019 courtesy of WordPress.com. That’s right - if selected you will attend our sold-out Summit with an all-expenses-paid experience. This includes two conference passes, round-trip airfare for one, and a three-night stay at Hotel Maya. We’re not done, though! Every one of the six hand-selected storytellers will be able to invite one blogger/creator friend to receive a conference pass to #WeAllGrow Summit and Wellness Day 2019 and three nights in a shared room with you at Hotel Maya!

Per tradition, the amazing Kathy Cano Murillo (the one and only Crafty Chica) will be back as our host, and she’ll also provide coaching via video conferencing in the weeks leading up to the Summit. She’s inspiring, helpful, and a storyteller in her own right! Storytellers would not be the same without her.

Winners will be chosen by a panel of judges comprised of the WordPress.com team, Kathy Cano Murillo and #WeAllGrow Latina Network. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to start brainstorming those pitches and submit! Deadline to submit is Wednesday, January 23rd at midnight PST.

Below find all the details and breakdown of the process. ¡Buena suerte, amigas! We can’t wait to feel your stories!

THE PITCH

  • Main topics to focus on. Note that we will only consider pitches along this topic:

    • Do Anything - how the feeling of limitless possibilities and being able to "do anything" is one of the biggest traits Changemakers possess. Share the moment you realized you could do anything, and how that drove you to make a change.

  • Stories must be original and true

  • 1 to 2-minute video pitch sharing only the main arc of the story.

  • Stay away from wide topics like "the story of my life" or "how I became a blogger" or “why I launched my business” and narrow it down to a very specific moment or anecdote that leads to your story of “Do Anything.”.

  • Video pitch must be uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo (as Unlisted is fine) and link shared for submission.

  • Note we are not looking for a professionally produced video. We’re only judging the quality of your story as it will be told on stage.

  • Can be bilingual, but at least 80% must be in English

  • You may submit as many times as you'd like

THE DEADLINE

All pitches must be received via the online form by 11:59 pm PST on January 23rd, 2019. Full terms and conditions here.
