Call for 2022 Top 5 Lists

What are your highlights from 2022?

Was there a favorite show, book, album, song, podcast, restaurant, or friend?

Last year I learned a lot about you from the Top 5 lists you contributed, and my 2022 list now has a few favorites from your 2021 lists.

There were 15 submissions last year, coming in from California, New York, Oregon, and an 11-year-old writer from Seattle who gave an “inappropriate content” warning about one of his favorite shows, The Office.

I’d love to have you join in the fun! Take a few minutes and write down your top 5 of anything. More details can be found here, or just write/comment back to me with questions.

Please submit it by December 23th, and I’ll publish them over the week of Christmas. Reach out with any questions : )
