NCRA's call for essays


We’re looking for informational narratives that offer current and prospective students a chance to learn from and relate to your personal experiences. Ideally, these entries should share certain qualities – insight, reflection, a personal voice and a down-to-earth tone. Creativity is encouraged and humor is a plus.


Your stories will likely be compiled into a book featuring a collection of inspirational and motivational essays that can be used as a resource for students. Our main goal in this initiative is to encourage and inspire students through stories from your perspective, as someone who has successfully completed court reporting school.
