That First Year is always looking for writers!

Whether you're experiencing That First Year after college right this very moment or you've already been there, done that, we invite you to share your challenges, triumphs and lessons learned from the transitional trenches of post-grad life.

We're looking primarily for stories. We want posts that are narrative-driven, that walk the reader through your post-grad experiences that led you to realizations and lessons learned. Don't just tell us what you learned; show us how you learned it. We will work with you through any post edits.

Beginning March 1, 2016, we compensate our writers on a per-post basis. At the moment, we only have pro-bono spots available for guest writers.

Dig what we do? You can help us pay more writers and pay writers more! Your purchase from The Creative Exchange supports That First Year and the creativity of your peers.
