Welcome to the section of the Missourian dedicated to your voices and your stories. Community contributions make our coverage more complete, and we hope you'll consider sharing — in text, picture or video form. We also publish obituaries just as families write them, as submitted by funeral homes.
The Missourian has a long history of and commitment to sharing community voices. Not sure what you have to share? Take a look at these examples of past submissions for inspiration. Or get in touch with Joy Mayer, the section's editor, to talk about some ideas.

Reader Joe Dillard has seen quite a few robins returning to Columbia lately and wonders what they eat when the ground is frozen making it hard to find delectable earthworms.
Missourian reporters try to write life stories for every person in our community who dies. We also, however, publish all obituaries we receive, just as we receive them. You’ll find those here.
