Submit personal essays, memoirs, and similar pieces here. We tend to publish work which connects in some way to literature, art, or societal issues.

  • Submit only one essay at a time.
  • Length should be from 1000 to 3000 words.
  • Don't embed images in your document. Any images can be uploaded separately.
  • We don't accept previously published personal essays; this includes work published on blogs.

I look forward to reading your essay!

best regards,
