Guidelines:* Please describe the beginning, middle and end of your story in a few sentences. * Tell us SPECIFICS: actual events, places, characters. Tell us what the conflict is. Provide enough detail to give us a sense of the story arc. * Stories must be true and based on your first hand experience * Stories can be from 3-10 min long* No essays - stories must be action based
Example of a good pitch:
"As an Indian, my introduction to this country at age 16 entering college in the Midwest taught me the first three words when I landed in this country. Those words - hooker, Thanksgiving, and pizza. How these came to be the 3 things I learned first when I arrived as a teenager in a 3-piece suit to spend my formative years? The story walks through my 1st few days in Ohio and the circumstances on how I discovered these words and what they mean to a 16 year old Indian seeing America for the first time."
Example of a pitch that will make us scratch our heads (don't send us a pitch like this):
"I was struggling, fighting against all odds. One day I received a letter that changed my life forever."
