Readers Ruminate Topic: "Under Pressure"

Each issue of Ruminate includes personal notes from our readers on a topic—we love hearing from our readers! 

We're looking for short nonfiction, 300 words or less, that tells us your honest experiences in rich image and detail. No poetry please. You can approach the topic from any angle.  

Because of space constraints, we aren't able to print all of the notes we receive. Also, we often edit the notes we receive, sometimes quite a bit, but each reader will have the chance to approve the edits. 

We will notify you if we decide to share your note in the magazine, and you'll receive a copy of the issue your note appears in. If you'd rather not have your name appear in the magazine, feel free to submit your note under "Name Withheld."

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
