At the start of 2017, we launched the Monthly College Mate Writing Contest. College dropouts, students, graduates, and members of staff, were encouraged to submit posts on all aspects of student and post-college life for a chance to win a small prize each month.
Our Most Popular Posts
Some of our most popular posts came from those contest submissions. In fact, the two most popular posts this year were submitted by Ta’lor as contest entries. She won both times with:
Decoding the Bro Code: One Night Stand or Long-term Girlfriend?
How to Maintain a Happy Long Distance Relationship
Great Connections + Goodbye
Without a doubt, the contest connected us with an amazing group of writers, and new readers. Still, even the best of things must come to an end, and for the Monthly College Mate Contest, this is it.
We want to thank all the writers who participated this year, and the amazing posts they contributed to our writing fold. It was a pleasure working with you, and getting to know each and every one of you.
If you planned on submitting to our blog, and you’re worried that this might mean the end of that opportunity, it’s not. We will continue to accept guest posts at College Mate. You can find the guidelines for regular submissions, here.
