ESSAY SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:
TMI Project is broadening its scope beyond monologue to include its close cousin, the personal essay. Each week, we will feature a different essay. What makes an essay a TMI essay? Meeting the following criteria: 1) It contains within it a story with a beginning, middle and end – so it’s not just a polemic. 2) You reveal a piece of the story you might otherwise leave out because it is too painful or embarrassing. This is the stuff that makes readers identify. 3) You take responsibility for your role. We do not want essays that solely blame others. Even if it’s necessary for the story that you reveal how others acted in harsh ways, the focus of the piece is on yourself and the revelations are personal. Submit essays of 500 – 2000 words to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration. We will respond if we are interested in running your piece.
