Each and every one of us has a personal story to share. That’s what makes learning French or living in France so special… because no two situations are ever the same.

Well, this is your chance to steal the spotlight. FrenchCrazy has reached millions of readers, so there’s an audience here who would love to hear what you’ve got to say.

Share your story – be it a challenge you face, one you’ve overcome, or even just a few words of encouragement. Your story could inspire others, rekindle dreams, or help us relate to hardships you’ve encountered.

If our staff likes your submission, we’ll publish it on FrenchCrazy and you’ll instantly receive a $10 Amazon gift card sent directly to your email inbox. Once we publish enough stories, our readers will then vote for the one they like the most. If your story wins, you’ll get another $100!

To participate – please email with your story and a creative title. Also tell us about yourself and attach a photo to the email :)

You should hurry though because the deadline to send us your story is March 31st, 2016.
