Tell us why you live where you live

    Everyone has a story behind why they set up house where they did. Maybe it was a move for a job, family or for love. Maybe you just are attached to the house (and city) you were born in, and can’t fathom leaving. Or maybe you live where you live because … you like it there. Whatever your tale, we want to hear it! Send us an essay between 300-600 words — and don’t forget to include a picture of yourself — telling us why you live where you live. You’ll be in good company — check out the examples of featured essays to get a feel for the sort of stories we’re looking for. We look forward to sharing why you live where you live with other NewsWorks readers.
