Share Your Story: Get Started

Every Texan has a story. What's yours?

The Texas Story Project lives here. Share your story and write your own page in Texas history.

You have a story. Every Texan has a story. Or hundreds. Here is your chance to tell at least one. Pick a prompt below and write your real-life version of that story. Feel free to include photos, audio files and/or video files if you'd like to share those, too. After you've composed your contribution, send it in. Museum staff will include selected pieces in the ever-growing Texas Story Project collection. Look through the stories we already have on the Interactive Texas Map if you need some inspiration, or if you just want to laugh and cry a little. Read them, search them, share them.

But first, write them.
