Submit Your Essay
Central to the Book-in-Common program is an exploration of how our personal beliefs and experiences are both shared and divergent. With This I Believe, we have an opportunity to extend that conversation to a wider audience through the collection and compilation of personal belief statements. We invite submissions from all our UofL faculty, staff, students and alumni as well as friends of the university who are our neighbors in the city of Louisville, throughout Kentucky, and beyond. We hope that you will add your voice to this unique project.
Submission & Review
All essays are reviewed by the This I Believe, Inc. reading team. Your essay should follow the customary This I Believe writing guidelines. After submitting your essay, you should hear back from This I Believe, Inc. in about a week to let you know if your essay has met submission guidelines and will be posted online.
Online Essay Bank
All essays submitted through our University of Louisville Book-in-Common project will be posted as an online collection and are simultaneously considered by This I Believe, Inc. for inclusion on the main thisibelieve.org site and weekly radio programming.
