Well, I was blown away by the outstanding writing that was submitted to this season’s contest.

I received about 10x the number of submissions I received for the Spring 2021 contest. Which made for a lot of reading, re-reading, and difficult decisions.

Please enjoy all of the wonderful creative nonfiction below, and leave the writers a comment…




Everyone has a story to tell, probably many more than one. Tell Your Story is home for the best creative nonfiction and personal essays on Medium, stories from the heart that help us all understand a little bit more about ourselves and the world around us.
