Here's a checklist of everything your story needs before you can submit it:anytime!
- A title that best summarizes the action
- A description, which is short if it is a small action that you have seen on the street and you don't know much about it, or a long description, if you are involved in the action. Tell the story of how everything started, the objective, etc. (we recommend from 400 to 600 characters).
- You must select a category and the city (and country) where the action takes places.
- A featured image that is worth a thousand words.
You're ready to go!
