From the Good Old Days guidelines:

Good Old Days tells the real stories of the people who lived and grew up in “the Good Old Days” (about 1935–1960). We like stories to sound informal and conversational, as if you’re sitting around the kitchen table
reminiscing with your friends and family. However, we are open to any way you choose to write your story, as long as it is true and falls within our targeted period of time. Successful stories tend to stick with one subject or plot (i.e., “how my brother and I got caught skipping school one day and faced the consequences,” “my favorite Christmas gift,” “my graduation dress,” etc.), not simply descriptions of a time or place (ex. “life on the farm” or “growing up in the 1940s”). Some stories are presented “as told by” the person who actually had the experience, but we do not accept fictional manuscripts.
