Can’t seem to find a good date? Enjoying your life as a single Millennial? Or do you just have a story to tell about how you paid off your student loans in two years? That’s why Anthology is looking for contributions from moms, dads, divorcees, and single Millennials all over the country. That’s why we’re hoping you will write for us.
What We’re Looking For Right Now
The editors of Anthology are always looking for informative (and fun) stories about the challenges and lessons from all Millennials. Right now, this is what we’re obsessing about….
Dating: Do apps work? Have a crazy first-date experience? Are you married and you’ve mastered the love languages? What are your thoughts on PDA? Dating isn’t easy; especially when everyone always has their eyes down on their phones. We’re always looking for dating stories on dating, engagements, and weddings for Millennials.
Parenting: How did you know you were ready to be a mom or dad? What were your favorite books with your little one? Millennials are getting married later which is changing the timeline of our parents and their parents’ lives. We love stories on raising kids in today’s world.
Wellness: Whether you have kids, are an entrepreneur, or just … are alive … how do you manage to get enough sleep? Or did yoga change your life? Maybe you found calm with meditation? We’d love to hear how you have been able to find some … any solution for your health in our fast-paced lives.
Career + Finance: How did you land your current job? What are the current resume trends? And how the hell can you use LinkedIn (or Facebook for that matter) to land a new job. Since we’re going to change jobs every 3-4 years, we need to constantly stay up on the trends in career development. Not only that, our finances sometimes can be a bit of a challenge. Loans, loans, bills, and retirement. We want to cover it all.
Life + Style: What are the best-hidden gems in the south? Love donuts? Have the best meatloaf recipe? And how to do dress like a movie star on less than $200. Living your best life is what Anthology is all about. We want to know how to live in today’s world and how to do it looking good.
