Avi sez, "'Mickey Mouse in Gurs' is a tragic 'comic' book made by Horst Rosenthal in 1942 while incarcerated at the Gurs internment camp in France.

USA TODAY invites college writers and journalists to submit their work to our National Gallery of Writing. Through this gallery, we hope to build and support a community of young writers because you are our next reporters and editors!
Our curator will select the best submissions to be displayed in our gallery. And each month, of the submissions we displayed, we will select the top few pieces to be critiqued by one of our own editors.
This editor will then provide you with his/her professional feedback on the merits of your writing.
Why should you submit your work?
How can you submit your work?
- To publish your best work in a highly visible way.
