Submission Guidelines


Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here and that you’re considering sharing your story with @grombre. You are what makes the Grombre community so unique, inspiring and supportive, and we’re so thankful you’re a part of it.

What You Need to Know Before Submitting:

We receive many inspiring stories every day, which means we aren’t able to post all of the stories sent to us on the Grombre instagram page, but do not be discouraged if your submission is not posted.

Instead, keep us updated on your journey by submitting at a later date and use hashtags #grombre and #gogrombre when posting updates on your personal account so that the Grombre community can cheer you on (Pro tip: did you know you can follow those hashtags?) And did you know we have a facebook group where you can post, chat, and further connect with the @grombre community?

How to Submit, and What to Include:

All submissions for posting consideration are received via the email address,, which can be found linked on the @grombre instagram page. Take care not to submit via direct message on instagram, your submission may get lost.

Here’s what to include in your submission email to

  • YOUR PHOTO: At least one high-quality image (see photo submission tips below).

  • YOUR STORY: We want to hear your unique perspective so we can better support you! And who knows? Your story may inspire others looking for encouragement.

  • YOUR INSTAGRAM HANDLE NAME: We work hard to credit each woman who shares their story on our page, so make sure to include your instagram name so you can be tagged in our post.

    • But what is an an instagram handle, anyways? An instagram handle is the name of your instagram account. For example, we are @grombre.

Writing Your Story: Tips on Making an Impact with Your Words

You’ve got a unique perspective and we can’t wait to learn from it. Your story has the power to inspire and encourage, and when it does, you’re empowering yourself and those around you.

You’ve probably already read some inspiring Grombre stories that resonate with you, but we want to highlight a few highly effective stories that the Grombre community loved in particular.

First, let’s look at a helpful tip on how not to write a story. We call it ‘the Silver Story Formula,’ and it’s one we’ve all read, and if we’re being honest, it’s one we’ve all written ourselves at some point, too.

How Not to Write Your Story:

“Hi, my name is _____ and I got my first grey hair at the age of _____. It has been _____ months since I last dyed my hair. I’m _____ years old and loving the freedom!”
