I Want Your Story for the 2014 Autograph University Yearbook

If you’ve been hanging around Autograph University you know our annual yearbook is the project nearest to my heart. It’s a collection of stories from collectors just like you (and I hope this year we can include one from YOU). The past two issues have featured works that touch on every emotion, from suspenseful pieces to ones that have you reaching for Kleenex.

I Want Your Story for the Autograph University YearbookI need your help to make the 2014 Yearbook the best and biggest yet. Can we best last year’s 15 submissions? I know we can. (If you haven’t already, check out our fantastic 2013 edition.)

We all have a favorite autograph story, whether it’s a memorable celebrity encounter or a multi-signed piece you spent years finishing. To be a part of our Yearbook all you have to do is email me your story. That’s it—you’re published!

The 2014 Yearbook will be distributed in June as an eBook and will be free to download.


  • Stories will be accepted until May 31. Email your submission to matt@autographu.com.
  • Your story should be as long as it needs to be (although 200 – 500 words is recommended).
