Call for Submissions: Americans Talk About Love

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

It goes without saying that love is complicated. Regardless of whether it seems like an unending marathon of romantic bliss or doomed from the start, you can rest assured that, for better or worse, it’s going to get interesting. 

Our friends over at Salon are currently running an awesome new bi-weekly feature titled Americans Talk About Love (edited by freelance writer John Bowe, whose work has appeared in the New Yorker, McSweeney’s and GQ among other places) wherein readers are invited to share their personal romantic experiences. The goal of the project is to collect a series of oral histories by Americans on the subject of love and what it means to them.  

ATAL is currently on the lookout for your best (or worst?) love stories. They can be funny, sad, hilarious or hopeful, as long as you learned something meaningful about love. So if you have a great story, or know somebody with one that you’d like to interview, you can email your suggestion to americans.love@gmail.com.
