Tell me what you love.
When we started the series 100 Words on Love, we thought it would last a few weeks, and then men would get tired of reading and writing about love.
But we were wrong. Twice a week, every single week, submissions came in that made us cry and laugh and gave us goosebumps. Because you guys are amazing.
100 Words on Love ran for more than a year and we were beguiled.
Now it’s time to share the love again. Who’s in?
Here’s what you can write about: Love.
That’s it. Any kind of love. Romance, sex, infatuation, unrequited, from afar, tender or sweaty or dirty or hot, long-distance, visceral, logical, heart-led, head-led.
Or even parental love, love for your grandmother, your sister, your pets, the best pizza in Chicago, your alma mater, the home team, a song, a band, your own damn self.
Write about love. Do it in as close to 100 words as possible. Don’t make it a list, make it a story.
Send submissions to [email protected]
