Tell us your story

Submit your unique NS stories via the form below! Selected entries will be turned into illustrated comic strips and showcased on our website and social media platforms. From your training days, favourite encik, to stories of courage and camaraderie - we would like to hear them from you!

Bring your #NSmemories to life!

Ever read someone’s story and think: That’s exactly what I needed to hear today! Your story will do that for someone else. Join us in reminiscing about our best NS days in the most creative form! Share your pictures with us and contribute your short stories (no more than 300 words) via the submission form below. Our aim is to collate as many stories as we can to form a big collective #NSmemories archive for Home Team NSmen to browse and look back with nostalgia.

Submission Guidelines

  • You’ll hear from us within 3 working days acknowledging that we’ve got your submission.
  • Your story will be reviewed by our staff within a week, sometimes more depending on the number of submissions we are dealing with.
  • Once your story has been shortlisted, it will be queued for posting. Depending on how many stories have been submitted, it may be a couple of weeks before you see it. Don’t worry! We will let you know as soon as it goes live so that you can tell your friends and share it on social media.
  • Keep it PG-13! We don’t accept stories with obscene sexual content, or intolerant or hateful speech.
  • Keep it religiously neutral and respectful. We do not, nor will we ever, represent or promote a single religion out of respect for the world’s diversity.
  • Even though we would much prefer that your writing to be raw and original, you may submit previously published work—if the website allows it—but please include all appropriate credits and links back to the original site.
  • If you include images, you must have permissions or the rights to use them.
