This is a call for submissions and your third challenge of this year. Young Minds of Medium — this is it! I am looking for work from the young writers here on Medium, ages 18–25. Submissions will be reviewed and posted on Mondays and Fridays beginning with a publishing date of August 14, 2020. I want to hear from you. I want to feel, connect with, and fall in love with the words you would like to share with the world.

Your theme: Tell Me About Your Neighborhood/City/Country

What am I asking?

I want to know where you live, what intrigues you about this place, and how long you’ve lived there. Do you have favorite places you like to visit? What’s your most visited restaurant in the area? Where do your friends live? Pre-COVID-19 days, what did you do most in your neighborhood/city/country?

I am looking for:

Fiction (no more than 1200 words)
Non-fiction (no more than 1200 words)
And, your heart. ❤

•You will need to be a current user on Medium for this challenge. Request to be added as a writer by emailing me at acorneredgurl[at]gmail[dot]com with “Please Add Me” as the subject line/title. In the body of the email, please include a link to your Medium profile. For the young ones, ages 18–25 already contributing to ACG, please submit your work in draft-form directly to A Cornered Gurl for review, scheduling, and/or publishing. You can submit twice per week, your works will be published on Monday and Friday of that week.

Please have a suitable image for your work with notable credit to its source/artist (Please include the link!). You can find plenty of great images via Unsplash, Pixabay, and Pexels. If you are the source for your image, please caption that.

Please subtitle your entries “Young Minds of Medium My Home” and tag your pieces with the following: “Growth” & “Home.” CHALLENGE SUBMISSION BEGINS NOW!

The start date for publishing the YMOM pieces is Friday, August 14, 2020, and the end date is Monday, August 31, 2020. Other contributors to ACG, please, no worries. You can submit as you normally would to A Cornered Gurl and your work will be published as well, however, a total of six pieces will be published on Mondays and Fridays for all other writers, leaving the floor wide open for our young ones. I hope you will understand and accept this.

*Please remember that A Cornered Gurl is a read-for-all community and there will be no metered paywall or locked pieces published here.

Thank you.
