Deputy Editor @Narratively, bylines @washingtonpost @Playboy @RollingStone etc. Memoirist rep’ed by Beth Vesel. #binders [email protected]

I’m always looking for new writers for Narratively ’s Memoir section. If you’re interested in submitting your work, it will make both of our lives much easier if you’re crystal clear ahead of time about what exactly I’m looking for. So, here’s a super-detailed run-down of everything you need to know about sending me your work — everything I’m dying to see more of, and everything I never want to see again:

There’s a slew of publications out there that publish 800-word personal essays about every small interaction and realization in your day-to-day life; parenting anecdotes, romantic mishaps, chance encounters that all wrap up neatly with a hard-earned lesson at the end. Some of these are well-written and heartwarming. Please do not send me these.

I want the bigger, deeper stories. And by “bigger” I don’t necessarily just mean longer (though sometimes that too), I mean more ambitious. Intellectually ambitious, emotionally ambitious stories that come pouring out of your depths — not the pithy anecdotes you scrape off the top like a pudding skin. I want the stories you’ve been trying to figure out how to tell for your whole life. The complicated, messy, human stories that bring the reader deep into your life.

And I know every editor says this, but I want stories I haven’t seen before. I want surprising stories, ideas that turn common tropes on their head and twist them.

Here are a few of my favorite Narratively memoir stories, to give you a more specific idea of what I’m looking for:

In case you’re wondering, here are some other done-to-death tropes that I never want to see again, with a few rare exceptions if you can really turn them upside down and make them new again:

-How a cancer diagnosis changed everything

-Parenting a sick child

-Death of a parent

-The story of your abortion

-The story of your time in the Peace Corps

-Your “Eat, Pray, Love” story about finding yourself while traveling

-The devastating effects of sexual assault

-The dissolution of a marriage you were sure was going to last

-How a certain food always reminds you of home

That’s not to say that you can’t write about any of those topics (or that they’re not incredibly important and meaningful experiences), but know that they’ve each been written about approximately 17 million times, and you’ll need to work extra hard to make them feel fresh and surprising.

What’s left, you ask? So, so much! There are no particular subjects I’m most interested in, though I do tend to enjoy a good “my secret past” or “dragging the family skeletons out of the closet” story. What draws me to a piece is not just the category of the subject matter, but how clear it is that you have something to say. Start with an experience that changed you — not something that slightly shifted your perception just enough to write a “huh, never thought of it that way” piece, but something that truly shattered and reconstructed your world. Or start with a question at the heart of who you are, something that’s obsessed and confounded you for as long as you can remember. That might be something about your identity and where you fit in the world, or your family and where you come from. Or… you tell me.

A few more important general notes:

Remember that the publication I work for is called Narratively. That should be a pretty good indication that I’m looking for narrative writing . To work for us, a story needs to have a beginning, a middle, and an end, with some compelling, active scenes throughout. This should truly be a story, not a diatribe, not a mediation, not a study. Definitely not an op-ed. A story.

Don’t send me time-sensitive pitches. I don’t care about news pegs like Father’s Day or Christmas or National Cupcake Day. I especially don’t care about them if you send me a story that’s pegged to one of these dates expecting a three-day turnaround. Most of our stories spend 4–8 weeks in production, so keep that in mind if you’re pitching something tied to a holiday or an anniversary — and know that most of our stories don’t have news pegs at all, so there’s never a need to force one that’s not really there. (But by all means feel free to send me stories related to topics that are on everyone’s minds — guns, healthcare, reproductive rights — stories that are timely because they’re topical, as opposed to stories that are pegged to a specific event.)

Don’t send me reported pitches. Those should go through Narratively’s Submittable page, .

The nitty gritty:

Pay : Yes, we pay for all published work. The rate for personal essays starts at $200, and can go up from there if it’s really epic, if it includes reporting, etc.

Pitches vs. Submissions : I prefer completed submissions. I will look at a pitch, but will usually need to see a draft on spec before committing to publishing a piece, even if I love your idea. This is not because I enjoy making writers do extra work, but because so much of a personal essay is about tone and execution, and there’s no way to know ahead of time if it will work — especially if I’ve never worked with you before.

Word count : There’s no set word count for stories we publish, but the sweet spot for personal essays at Narratively is around 2,000–3,000 words.

If you’ve read all of this, hopefully you have a pretty good idea of whether that story you’re kicking around would be a good fit or not. If it belongs on my list of best Narratively memoir stories ever please submit it .

Unexpected Results in Online Controlled Experiments, SIGKDD Dec 2010 Ron Kohavi and Roger Longbotham

Abstract: Controlled experiments, also called randomized experiments and A/B tests, have had a profound influence on multiple fields, including medicine, agriculture, manufacturing, and advertising. Offline controlled experiments have been well studied and documented since Sir Ronald A. Fisher led the development of statistical experimental design while working at the Rothamsted Agricultural Experimental Station in England in the 1920s. With the growth of the world-wide-web and web services, online controlled experiments are being used frequently, utilizing software capabilities like ramp-up (exposure control) and running experiments on large server farms with millions of users. We share several real examples of unexpected results and lessons learned.

Abstract: Tracking users’ online clicks and form submits (e.g., searches) is critical for web analytics, controlled experiments, and business intelligence.Most sites use web beacons to track user actions, but waiting for the beacon to return on clicks and submits slows the next action (e.g., showing search results or the destination page).One possibility is to use a short timeout and common wisdom is that the more time given to the tracking mechanism (suspending the user action), the lower the data loss.Research from Amazon, Google, and Microsoft showed that small delays of a few hundreds of milliseconds have dramatic negative impact on revenue and user experience (Kohavi, et al., 2009 p. 173), yet we found that many websites allow long delays in order to collect click.For example, until March 2010, multiple Microsoft sites waited for click beacons to return with a 2-second timeout, introducing a delay of about 400msec on user clicks. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first published empirical study of the subject under a controlled environment. While we confirm the common wisdom about the tradeoff in general, a surprising result is that the tradeoff does not exist for the most common browser family, Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE), where no delay suffices. This finding has significant implications for tracking users since no waits is required to prevent data loss for IE browsers and it could significantly improve revenue and user experience.The recommendations here have been implemented by the MSN US home page and Hotmail.

Online Experiments: Practical Lessons, IEEE Computer Sept 2010 Ron Kohavi, Roger Longbotham, and Toby Walker

Abstract: From ancient times through the 19th century, physicians used bloodletting to treat acne, cancer, diabetes, jaundice, plague, and hundreds of other diseases and ailments (D. Wooton, Doctors Doing Harm since Hippocrates, Oxford Univ. Press, 2006). It was judged most effective to bleed patients while they were sitting upright or standing erect, and blood was often removed until the patient fainted. On 12 December 1799, 67-year-old President George Washington rode his horse in heavy snowfall to inspect his plantation at Mount Vernon. A day later, he was in respiratory distress and his doctors extracted nearly half of his blood over 10 hours, causing anemia and hypotension; he died that night.

General Move-In Information

Official WSU move-in begins on Wednesday, August 15. While residence hall contracts begin on Saturday, August 11, WSU highly encourages studentsto arrive for move-in on August 15 to begin their successful college experience with Week Of Welcome events beginning that night.

This year, the WSU community and departments across campus collaborate to develop to best possible options to facilitate the thousands of students and cars that arrive on move-in day. Your arrival time, the hall you’re moving into, and the particular day you arrive, all play a factor in your experience.Those moving in will need to sign up and indicate their planned arrival time. Please complete the form located at Clearance Sale Online Derby shoes in embossed suede HUGO BOSS Discount Pay With Visa Sale Shop Discount Many Kinds Of Discount Manchester Great Sale 5RDbtp

Please plan to come with patience and know that there will probably be some wait times to get into your unloading zone. Hundreds of volunteers, Housing Residence Life staff, and Parking Transportation Services staff want your move-in to be smooth and low stress. They are easily identifiable and happy to help. Please keep in mind that pets are not allowed in the residence halls when moving in.

You can findmore information about move-in at Information will also be shared and live tweeted on move-in day, please follow us @reslifewsu and use #WSUWOW .

Specific Instructions for Northside Hall

Traffic is more challenging on the north side of campus during move-in so cars will be directed into queuing lines and will be released as active unloading zones become available for their hall. Portable toilets and water bottles are available while waiting. Lines can be as short as a couple of minutes and rarely as long as 20 minutes.

Drive to the Yellow parking lot South of Beasley Coliseum and let the attendants know what hall you are moving into so you get in the correct car queue line. When instructed, drive to your assigned hall and look for the parking attendant and temporary parking signage directing you to an active unloading zone.

Proceed to the front desk and check in with your Cougar Card or photo ID. While you check in, have your family/friends find a move-in volunteer to start loading up a cart; this way you can get moved in quicker and more smoothly.

As soon as you are done actively unloading, you must move your vehicle to the gray parking lot behind Beasley Coliseum to make room for others. Parking staff will be on site to assist you with directions.

Extra recycling containers are brought in specifically for move-in. Please pay attention to where you are disposing of garbage versus recycling.

For hanging items on your walls in Northside Hall please use push pins. Staff will be offering a few at the check-in station to get you started; you can always ask for more at the front desk throughout the year, as well. Do not use 3M mounting products, double-sided mounting products, permanent mounting products, blue mounting putty, masking tape, or duct tape.

Words of Wisdom from past students and parents

Rooms are smaller than you think. Spend some time looking at the photos and room dimensions and be realistic with what will fit. Review what you can’t bring – the list is specific for each hall.
