Hiraeth is a human condition, and the idea of finding or making ‘home’ is the subject of many works of art. Home is more than just a shelter, it is a feeling, one that we can’t always explain. It can even evolve and change as we grow.  If you have an experience that you’d like to share, we’d love to hear it. Is yours a story of love, personal growth, refuge, or adventure…?

We are looking for submissions that demonstrate an individual experience or expression of hiraeth or finding home. Non-native English speakers are welcome and encouraged to submit, and we also accept submissions in other languages (accompanied by English translation).

You retain all copyrights to your work. This is a platform for creating dialogue and building community. We are a team of volunteers and Hiraeth is a nonprofit organisation. If you have any other questions, please email us. Or click on the relevant link to submit:
