Your story topic should be about one topic so readers will best be able to understand your perspective on it. It helps to ask yourself: If I were to summarize the core message of my story into one phrase, what would that be? Examples:
“In Colombia, it is difficult for me to recycle because I am not wealthy.”
“When India instituted a quarantine to stop the coronavirus, I learned how my neighbors looked after one another”
We really like anecdotes and personal nuances. Your personal story is something no one else can tell. And that's why we'd like you to tell it.

At Correspondents of the World, we want to contribute to a better understanding of one another in a world that seems to get smaller by the day - but somehow neglects to bring people closer together as well. We think that one of the most frequent reasons for misunderstanding and unnecessarily heated debates is that we don't really understand how each of us is affected differently by global issues.
Our aim is to change that with every personal story we share.
Correspondents of the World is not just this website, but also a great community of people from all over the world. While face-to-face meetings are difficult at the moment, our Facebook Community Group is THE place to be to meet other people invested in Correspondents of the World. We are currently running a series of online-tea talks to get to know each other better.
