About This Project

In September 1999, The Washington Post asked readers to submit autobiographical sketches of 100 words or fewer. There were no other requirements, except that the stories be true. In the following month, the newspaper received more than 3,300 entries. The 100 autobiographies chosen for publication were selected on the strength of the writing, the impact of the stories, and the degree to which the life experiences of the writers reflected the community at large. All published writers live in, or have ties to, the Washington area.
