We’re inviting college students nationwide to open their hearts and laptops and write an essay that tells the truth about what love is like for them today. In our previous contests, which attracted thousands of entries from students at hundreds of colleges and universities, the winning essays explored ambivalence about hooking up, the way technology is changing how we connect and how an aversion to labels can impact relationships.
What will be on students’ minds this year?
If you have a story that illustrates the current state of love and relationships, email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your name, college, graduation year, email address and phone number. The winning author will receive $1,000 and his or her essay will be published in a special Modern Love column in late April.
