Share your Coatesville stories with us!


We all have stories…

When building the framework for BYPASSED, our director saw the opportunity to share hundreds of voices with our audience. We have worked intently on our film, now in post production, but want to shift focus back to including as many Coatesville storytellers as we can with the 19320 community and beyond.

We’ve created this story submission form to make it easy for you to share your voices with us. Your written stories can be about dreams for Coatesville’s future, fond memories about the city’s past, reflections on the present, or brags about hometown heroes and your own student’s accomplishments.

I would like the BYPASSED editorial team to proofread and edit my piece. *
I have a photo(s) I'd like to accompany this piece (a member of our team will then e-mail you) *

Have a close relationship with a community elder who would like to participate, but may lack internet access? We would love for you to record them and send us an edited audio file for transcription.
