MISSION & VISION
We’re a Chicago-based team of young writers and dreamers, our sole mission being to celebrate the beauty that’s sewn throughout the planet’s only superpower melting-pot. Poke around a bit and you’ll find that our “Original American art forms” aren’t necessarily ‘urban’ or ‘rural’. We write about wherever we find community.
We offer insightful life experience pieces, tales from our travels, and viewpoints from a cornucopia of young artists selected for the COA team with a goal of diversifying our viewpoints. We want to offer you, our reader, an opportunity to see how the other half lives.
We’ll never publish ‘click-bait’, and we’ll never cram a political stance down your throat. We think that’s saying a lot.
GET PAID TO WRITE
We are always seeking new writers, photographers, whatever-ers for the COA artist family. If you’d like to get paid for your craft have it promoted on our dime, please drop us a line through the Contact Us form.
Our writers and contributors have found all kinds of artistic outlets with COA. We’re an especially good fit for those fiction writers out there looking to talk about real life a bit.
New artists will start as contributors and will have the opportunity to become staff COA writers.
