America: color it in

This Independence Day, we are calling out for your stories, tales, lyrics, and poetry to color in an America that has been washed over. Because everybody should have authority over their own story.

From July 4th to August 4th, we invite all Americans to submit a short story, poem, or piece of creative nonfiction speaking to the theme of America: color it in.
