Submit your story to Stroke Connection® e-News

If you want to share your stroke story, art, video or tips for stroke recovery, we want to hear from you. We believe it’s important to shine a spotlight on stroke survivors and caregivers because they can inspire and help fellow survivors through their journeys, and help other people understand what it’s like to recover from stroke. Here’s what you need to know if you’d like us to publish your content: 

Who will write my story? 

You can do it yourself, or we can have our professional editorial staff interview you and write it for you. Whatever works best for you works for us!

Are all submissions published? 

We’ll consider every story we receive, but we can’t guarantee publication. We’ll publish as many as we can. 

Where would my story appear?

In our monthly Stroke Connection e-News , on and possibly on other AHA/ASA properties. If our editorial staff writes your story, it also will be syndicated through The Associated Press and may appear in news outlets and on websites nationwide. 

If you’d like to submit your own story*, or other stroke-related content, please send your submission to [email protected]. If you’d like to be interviewed for a story, email a summary of your story to [email protected]

* Stories should be no more than 800 words.
