Times Remembered

Mark your memories in Seniority

Published August 31, 2004

In this feature called Times Remembered, we're asking readers to write essays about significant events that happened in their lives during the current month.

Only one essay will be selected for publication each month in Seniority along with a photograph of the author. We've sweetened the pot a little so that the winning essayist also gets $100.

Here are the instructions:

1. Essays should be no longer than 750 words. (Please, no poetry. We won't even look at poetry entries.)

2. The event must have taken place during the month in which that issue of Seniority is published, but please include the year.

3. Essays will not be returned unless a self-addressed, stamped envelope is provided.

4. Be sure to include your name, age, address, ZIP code, phone number with area code where you can be reached during the day, and e-mail address if you have one.

The winning essayist will be notified within a week after the deadline postmark. (Please, no phone calls or e-mails about the status of an essay.)

Essays may be edited for content and style.
