The Garden of Ideas – Seeks Submissions

The Garden of Ideas interdisciplinary philosophy journal is back for another year. Our journal, which debuted last year in person and online, looks to continue publishing student content campus wide this year and beyond. At this time, we have three important updates:

  1. We are now actively looking for both academic and creative submissions for our Fall 2022 issue.

Our journal is open to both philosophy and non-philosophy majors in an effort to publish work from students with ideas on a broad range of topics. We adopt a highly inclusive definition of philosophy that welcomes endless ways of portraying philosophical ideas. Examples of possible work styles to submit include:
–Academic essays

–Creative writing (e.g., short stories and poetry)

–Visual art (eg., drawings and photography)

–Class work you’re proud of

Submissions can be submitted via email to Be sure to include your name and contact information, as well as anything else you’d like us to know about your work. When your submission is selected to be published in the upcoming issue, we will contact you. Soon after, you will begin to work in collaboration with an editor to polish your piece into its highest form over the course of a two week period.

  1. Keep an eye out for paper copies of our Spring 2022 issue that you can find around campus and on The Ave. We are very proud of this insightful collection of art pieces, essays, and interviews, and we hope you enjoy it!

  2. Visit our website [] for semi-regular philosophical discourse in the form of upcoming article reviews and more. This is also where we plan to publish the Fall 2022 issue of the journal.

Our journal isn’t possible without your submissions. Help us create a comprehensive journal designed to showcase the best thinkers and artists on campus. We look forward to your content and working with you to publish them in The Garden of Ideas.
