I saw the headline and I wasn’t sure about it — I’m sorry to say that I went into reading this with a preconceived misconception. And you proved me wrong.

Hi, I’m Jyssica. I’m putting together a collection of #metoo stories as a book. I’m a writer/editor & am self-funding the project. I’ve been receiving stories from all over and was hoping you’d want to be involved & share your story as part of the collection

Many contributors wish to remain anonymous, which I completely understand. I only ask for a first name (can be fake), age & location. I have received stories from men, too. This movement is about ALL victims of assault and harassment

I am happy to give you any info you want about me, and here is a post I wrote about it with more info: https://medium.com/@jyssicaschwartz/metoo-the-book-share-your-story-332ee518e5a4

Would you be open to letting me publish this whole post? I really love the way you talk about it from the other side, about possibly causing others to be uncomfortable — this is something less discussed throughout this movement.

You can be published under your real name or not, your choice.
