Editorial Policy


Uplifting Stories is dedicated to sharing real-life stories that make people feel good. We do not publish stories that are defamatory, discriminatory or potentially damaging to individuals. We do not publish overtly commercial editorial. Our aim is to use people’s stories responsibly and sensitively and to comply with international copyright laws.




Sorry but we are not able to pay fees to publish stories.
