Call for Submissions — Defining Your Voice As A Writer

The hard part about standing out as a writer is figuring out how to differentiate yourself. We all want to be heard. We all want our words to be significant and distinct.

As we think about what it means to share our thoughts and creations publicly, what are you doing to define your voice? How do you want to be known and remembered in reference to your writing? What steps are you taking to make sure that your voice is authentic?

For example, Kern Carter writes a lot about the creative struggle, particularly from the emotional perspective. Between those pieces and his pieces about what it’s like being an author, his voice has been both informative and inspirational.

Now it’s your turn. Send us pieces that define your voice or tell us what you’re doing to define who you are as a writer.

Same rules as always:

  • If you’re already a writer for CRY, go ahead and submit.
  • If you’re not a writer for CRY but would like to submit to this request, let us know and we’ll add you ASAP.
  • Be as creative as you want in your submissions. As long as you stick to the topic, we’ll consider it.
  • Just because you submit doesn’t mean we’ll post. If you haven’t heard back from us in three days, consider that a pass.
  • The deadline to submit is Monday, April 26th, 2021.

Please reach out if you have any questions at all. If you are new to Medium, here’s how you submit a draft to a publication.
