Deering X7

As I googled places to publish freelance essays I found that The Boston Globe publishes 650-word personal essays about relationships. I would submit my piece, The Sitting Room, about my relationship with my mom and step-dad for the publication. My essay is about 3 times this length so I would have to revise it in order to fit the word count. I would have to work on finding the most important information while also making it powerful without all the backstory I have. I think that could be an exercise that would help my growth as a writer.

I also looked into publishing on They look for personal essays between 5,000-10,000 words. I would also rework The Sitting Room to fit within this criteria but instead I would have to add a lot more to my essay, which would most likely change focus, all though it would be on the same topic.
