Calling all writers!
We know youre out there. Every day, you send us reflections, essays, stories about your lives. And every week, we wonder if we can give more of you a chance to get printed.
Well, now were giving you a little extra room to flex your writing muscles. Were getting ready to introduce a feature we call variations on a theme. It works like this: We provide a topic. Envy, say. You send us a few paragraphs about an experience youve had with envy. Skys the limit -- as long as it uses our topic as a starting point and its a true story from your own life. Were looking for candor and honesty. Oh, and it has to be 375 words or less.
Right now, were planning to run a few of these every six weeks or so, with the first one starting Oct. 21. As with letters to the editor, we cant offer payment. But we hope it gives our readers a chance to introduce themselves to us and to each other. Everybody has a story to tell.
Send your themes to: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also send them by regular mail to Themes, Antonia Ryan, NCR, 115 E. Armour Blvd., Kansas City MO 64111. Or fax them to 816-968-2280. We ask that you include your name, city and state, mailing address, phone number and e-mail, if you have one. We reserve the right to edit all submissions; if yours is chosen, well let you approve of the edited version before its printed.
