Comments: "No topic is off-limits. We look for personal stories that are in some way emotionally compelling - stories that make us gasp, giggle, cry, or cheer. Stories that do this can range from the subtle to the sensational, but tend to work better when describing a single event, rooted in a time and place, as opposed to a decades-long memoir. We always look for a hook toward the top of the story that hints at the outcome and holds suspense, compelling us to read more."
