Call For Submissions — What’s Your Biggest Struggle

I know the title is asking what “is” your biggest struggle, but feel free to tell us what “was” your biggest struggle. It would be great to hear stories of overcoming struggle along with stories of those of you who are still going through it.

If I had to answer this question, there’s a list of struggle I could choose from. Being a teenage parent, fighting for my writing career, or more recently, trying to buy a home.

But I’ll leave myself out of this one. I’m sure all of you will be sharing incredible stories of perseverance so I’m excited to read your submissions.

Same rules as always:

  • You can submit to this or ANY of our past writing prompts. Just scroll through our previous newsletters. They’ll be marked “Call for Submissions.”
  • If you’re already a writer for CRY, go ahead and submit.
  • 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.
