Today a noon Pacific time, the crew at Longshot Magazine in NYC announced the theme for this issuedebt!

From their announcement:

How You Can Get Involved With Longshot Magazine

The dynamic trio and their team of volunteer editors, sketch artists, photographers, writers, reporters and poets are at it again — the 48-hour, user-generated Longshot Magazine will be produced July 29 through July 31 in New York City.

By noon on Sunday, the magazine will be completed and sent to print, and a digital, mobile-compatible version will be available online.
