First Person: Your essays

Everyone has a story to tell. That's something we firmly believe here at CNN.


From the father who almost left his disabled child to the feminist who converted to Islam, iReporters are bravely sparking conversations with the written word.


Have a personal story to share with the world? Like the idea of a byline on CNN.com? We're looking for your submissions. Tell us about the experiences that have shaped the person you are today.


Take a look at our essay-writing tips, and then upload your story along with a photo of yourself. Don't worry if you don't have professional writing experience -- our editors will work with you to make your piece sing. If we're interested in publishing, we'll be in touch.
