Call for Submissions — When Was the Last Time You Cried?

Crying is such a unique action. We can cry while feeling sad, angry, scared, joyful, hopeful or frustrated. Not sure if you know this, but that’s the reason this magazine is called CRY. It’s the only action that is consistent with every emotion, and when we share stories, we want readers to connect emotionally, whatever emotion that may be.

For this week’s writing prompt, tell us the last time you cried. As we alluded to above, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a negative moment. If you cried tears of joy, tell us why. On the flip side, if you haven’t cried in a long time, tell us about that, too.

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.
