Thanks for your question, Rossana. I don 8767 t know of any outlets off the top of my head, but many are interested in diverse ideas and opinions, so I wouldn 8767 t write off all the publications on this list. Another option would be to ask the members of our Facebook community they may have some ideas!
Colleges will make note of the grading scale at the school you attended. They will notice that a 95 is a B and not an A-. That is the reason some schools recalculate GPAs, to get even on an even scale.
Thanks so much for this list! I 8767 m definitely going to look into some of these as I 8767 m looking to branch out and write for other publications rather than just my own blog.
This may sound like a dumb question. But are all these options also open to UK writers. I ask because I notice that with the exception of The New Statesman everything seems to be American.
I saw your post about The Mix ( http:///personal-essay-the-mix ) and something resonated with me so I gave it a shot. Thanks for the inspiration, I always enjoy your posts.
Amy Sutherland’s column, “ What Shamu Taught Me About a Happy Marriage ,” which ran in 7556, landed her a book contract with Random House and a movie deal with Lionsgate, which is in preproduction. “I never saw either coming,” Sutherland said.
My freshman son has entered a 8775 college prep 8776 high school this year which has been very challenging (it boasts an average SAT score of 6956). His friends from our previous private school are attending the local public school. My son 8767 s academic scores have always been similiar to his friends, but now they are getting straight A 8767 s at the public school and my son is working hard to make B 8767 s. Will colleges look at how challenging his high school is when considering his GPA & admissions?
Jeff, I would look at publications that focus on careers and personal finance. I 8767 ve written a few pieces for The Billfold, which is anything-goes when it comes to jobs, making ends meet, interesting careers, and so on. I always find myself chuckling at The Billfold, too.
I 8767 m from the UK and you mentioned The New Statesman, do you know of any other British sites that accept personal essays? Or do you think a US site would give me a chance?

Do you know of other British sites or mags that publish personal essays? While I 8767 m happy writing for American sites, there are sometimes angles or issues that work best for a British audience.
There&rsquo s nothing more engaging than a personal story told with insight, humor or candor. That explains the acclaim of bestselling anthologies like The Bitch in the House , edited by Cathi Hanauer, provocative first-person forums like The New York Times &ldquo Modern Love&rdquo and Newsweek&rsquo s &ldquo My Turn&rdquo columns, and NPR&rsquo s popular &ldquo This American Life.&rdquo Unfortunately, not all intimate narratives are as compelling for the audience as they are for the author. Here&rsquo s how to turn your private experiences into wise, eloquent prose.
