New Readers Report: “The Emperor’s New Clothes”


We’re hungry for more writing from Rumpus readers, so we’re now accepting submissions for our next Readers Report!

This time, in light of the upcoming inauguration, we’re asking you to tackle the theme “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” (We’ll be running the piece the week following the inauguration.)

Please send your submissions, maximum 400 words, to Susan Clements at silentjoy2001 AT We’ll choose the best ones to run as a feature on the site.

All submissions are due by midnight on Wednesday, January 11.
