Your Brush with Fame and History

Have you ever had known or met a famous person who made her mark in history?   Met a president, an inventor, an explorer or other notable?  Had a discussion, grew up with a person that became famous or infamous?

Known a celebrity?

Share your experience in a personal narrative.  How did this experience change you?  Does the person the world knows differ from the person you met?  Or are they the same?  If it’s a person in history, you may sell this piece to the History Alive column in History Magazine.  Or there are many back pages in magazines that accept first person pieces.

Or you may take this idea another way.  Did YOU almost arrive at fame?  How? 

Remember to put specific details and an anecdote in either piece to make the reader feel like they know you and the other person.
