We are looking for pieces that share personal experiences of living in or visiting Saint Paul. Nonfiction, fiction, poetry, cartoons and more are all accepted. You do not need to live in Saint Paul to write about Saint Paul. Stories and poems must be 650 words or less. A total of four writing submissions from one author are accepted for review each year.* No more than two pieces from the same author will be accepted for publication each year.  

All writing will be reviewed in group discussions by our community editors (approximately 20 people). If your piece is accepted for publication, you will receive $50 and a free book.

Please do not include your name or identifying information in the submission title, file name, or body of work.

You will need to enter a short biography of 50 words or less.
