With just one month until our Story Wall is unveiled on September 1, our team has been hard at work.

In addition to reading through stories, planning outreach events across the state, and helping to digitize media, we’ve been working on the design of the Story Wall. We wanted to give you a sneak peek of what this website will eventually look like!

 

The home page will feature the Story Wall itself. The stories will be assembled in a grid-like virtual “wall” and will scroll from left to right. Each story will have a corresponding image and/or quote to draw the reader in.

 

From the header, you will be able to click on “Find Stories” to search stories using a variety of filters including keyword, point of view, and story theme.

There will even be an interactive map that you can search based on current location and location during the war.

 

Regardless of how you find a story, when you click on the story image, that story’s unique page will open up.

Watch the short video below to view what a sample story page might look like:

 

The website will have a few additional features, but we want to save some of the good stuff for the big reveal!

Our staff has been honored to read all of the story submissions so far, and we are eager to share them with the rest of the world. If you haven’t already shared your story, click here to submit.
