Lived Experience Writing Contest

The QPR Institute for the American Association of Suicidology is sponsoring the Paul G. Quinnett Lived Experience Writing Contest. The purpose of the Paul G. Quinnett Lived Experience Writing Contest is to encourage the publication of those who have attempted suicide or experienced persistent suicidal ideation. Due to stigma and taboo, the world has been denied important educational narratives of survival, hope, recovery, and revival.

Share your personal experience with the world and those who may be about to embark on a similar possible life-threatening path. All entries must be related to the first person experience of suicidal ideation or a suicide attempt, but entries may be co-authored.

Cash prizes include:

  • $1,500 for first place

  • $1,000 for second place

  • $500 for third place

Entries will be accepted online from January 9, 2017 to February 28, 2017.
