Make Your Writing Dreams Come True!

When it comes to your writing, did you finally get around to doing that thing you've always wanted to do? Every day, writers everywhere are realizing that it's never too late to start that memoir, try a new genre, move to the oceanside (or mountaintop) writing spot of your dreams, launch a blog, found the writing group you've always wanted…

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Writer's Digest wants to hear your stories of going after the writing dreams or goals you've always longed for, but never quite pursued until

Share what you've learned (and what others can learn) from the experience, and how you discovered that it really never is too late, and you might just inspire other writers to go where you have boldly gone before.

Send us your story, along with your name, city/state and URL (if applicable), via email to:
writersdigest@fwmedia.com
with "Never Too Late" in the subject line.

Or, post it here in the comments field below!

Select stories will be featured in the November/December issue of Writer's Digest magazine and/or at WritersDigest.com and other WD publications (and by submitting your story, you grant permission for your words to appear). Responses may be edited for space or clarity.
