Law And Order Party is looking for your beach stories. The L&OP Summer Guide will feature reader-submitted stories about the area’s best (and maybe not best) beaches. Have a favorite? Let’s begin!
Some things to think about: Is this beach good for swimming? For people watching? For sitting alone with a book while watching waves crash? How clean is the water? How close is the nearest clamcake stand? Is there somewhere free to park? Are the restrooms spectacularly eco-friendly? Do you have to be a townie to get access?
You don’t have to answer all of these questions, but maybe answering a couple of them would help. Make it personal. Or don’t! Embrace the openness of the essay format. But keep it concise, whatever you do.
Send essays of up to 200 words about ONE area beach to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, May 20th. I’ll be publishing one story about each beach so I’ll let you know right away if you wait until the last minute and your choice is already taken.
