What’s your dramaland catnip? Tell us your stories!
And now for something new!
We’ve been wanting to open up the site to more diverse kinds of topics and posts (within the realm of dramas, that is), and also to give you guys, the readers of Dramabeans, more opportunities to have your thoughts heard. One avenue we want to open up is reader-submitted stories and personal accounts, whether it’s to talk about your favorite types of dramas or how dramas have affected your lives.
To that end, we’re kicking off a Theme of the Month series: Every month, we’ll post a topic or prompt, and invite you to write in your submissions. We’ll post these submissions (as well as those from our own staff) throughout the month. The following month, we’ll pick a new theme and lather, rinse, repeat.
We’re kicking off our first month with the theme “Dramaland Catnip,” which is any kind of trope, idea, plot point, or other story element that has an immediate, strong (and even irrational) pull on you and gets you to watch. Are you a sucker for a certain kind of romantic trope? Is it an entire genre, like action-thrillers, or is it an irrelevant but strangely appealing detail, like a hero’s mane of glory? We want to hear your stories!
- Email your submissions to email@example.com. If you have a registered Dramabeans account, include your handle so we can link to it.
- Include at least 1 image, though more is preferred.
- Suggested length is between 500 and 1,000 words.
- Deadline: We will post these on a rolling basis, so we’re taking submissions now. We will cut off accepting submissions on June 25. If you miss this month, join us for a new theme in July!
