Want to Write for the Washington Post?

Ever want to write for the Washington Post? See your name in print all over the city? Know that potentially hundreds of thousands of people are reading your writing? Well, here's your chance.

The Washington Post is launching a new page of the Style section devoted to the coverage of love and romantic relationships. The page, called OnLove, will occasionally feature first-person stories written by readers. According tho the Post, "We're looking for short, powerful narratives about some meaningful relationship experience. Our hope is that these will be intimate and revelatory, but the tone can range from poignant or heartbreaking to profoundly comical. The field is wide open. The biggest challenge will be brevity -- we need pieces that are no longer than 700 to 900 words. Writers will, of course, have their bylines prominently displayed with their stories."

Send submissions to OnLove@washpost.com.
