Call for Rumpus Readers Report: “The New Patriot”


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

Through the month of July, we’ll be looking at what it does and doesn’t mean to be a patriot. So this time around, we’re asking you to tackle the theme “The New Patriot.”

Please send your submissions, maximum 400 words, to Susan Clements at silentjoy2001 AT We’ll choose the best ones to be included in a feature that will run on the site in July.

DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED! All submissions are due before midnight on Sunday, June 6.
