My London Story is an app and website that geo-locates non-fiction, long-form stories about the city. We publish ten original stories in every edition and illustrate each with original photography. The idea is that, over time, we’ll build a unique portrait of London through quality, experiential writing. In each story we identify the location of the narrative as specifically as possible - from bus stops to homes, street corners to pubs, familiar landmarks to quiet backwaters. Some of the stories are funny, other are heartbreaking, but we hope that all of them are innovative and enlightening and reflect the richness and uniqueness of London in a way that's authentic. We’ll publish stories set in pubs, at bus stops, on the way to school, at your nan’s house. They can be about love affairs, dogs, Sunday dinners or break-ups. And they can be set at any time – the Summer of Love, the Silver Jubilee, the Winter of Discontent, a visit from the in-laws, your first night in the city. My London Story reflects the history, complexity and wonder of our metropolis through narratives about the every day and the extraordinary and reveals the city to us in new ways. We’re passionate about finding new writers and giving a voice to those whose stories go untold: My London Story is as much about novice writers as it is about established authors. The pieces can be any length and on any subject. The only fixed criteria are that the stories must have happened at a recognisable London location and must be true. Our aim is to nurture a thriving community of storytellers and readers. We’d love you to be part of it.
