Story Submission

We want to make it as simple as possible for you to provide us with stories related to any member of the Vistelar Group (Arma Training, Verbal Defense & Influence, Manage Bullying, Your Family Defense, V-School, CURE For Indignity). That’s why we put this Stories Submission System in place.

There are five ways to submit a story. Please use the method for which you are most comfortable.

If you make a video or audio submission, the page will refresh and you will stay on this page.

If you make a text submission, you’ll be taken to another page. To return to this page, click the Back button or enter VistelarStories.com in your browser .
