Tell us your Columbia story
This is the space for anyone who wants to go a little more in depth with their experience here in Columbia. Maybe that stems from a memory or a special person you met. Perhaps you want to tell us what Columbia means to you or what this community must do to thrive in the future. Whatever the prompt, this is a forum for publishing those thoughts and sharing them.
Before submitting your post, please read the guidelines below. Happy writing!
Be respectful. We won't publish offensive language or content. Criticism and debate are welcomed and expected, but this is not a platform for personal attacks.

Be concise. In order to keep our stories as engaging as possible, we ask that you keep your post to 2,000 words or less.
Be creative. Images are awesome. If you have a picture that reflects what you're saying, upload it along with your submission!
Be transparent. We encourage all writers to add their name to submissions so we can publish them on this platform and give credit where credit is due.
