Hi! This survey comes from me, Hillary Frank -- creator of The Longest Shortest Time podcast. Before I started the show, I wrote and illustrated three YA novels and my reporting was mostly about teenagers. I'm currently developing a new project about middle school. To get in the zone, I'm collecting middle school anecdotes from people like YOU. The material I gather here may wind up in the project or it may simply serve as inspiration. Either way, I'm super grateful that you're taking the time to share your experiences with me. I hope the act of filling out this form is fun, and maybe even cathartic.
