We welcome submissions from any U.S. accredited institutions of higher learning: community colleges, state and private institutions, early start college programs, etc. We accept traditional essay submissions of 2500-5000 words (with 250-word abstracts), but we also encourage non-traditional and multimodal contributions. Such contributions might include poetry, digital art, or alternate genre projects, but these submissions should include an extended abstract of 500 words that details the author’s goals, form, and how the work would meaningfully add to ongoing critical conversations. This extended abstract will serve as a framing statement in the published journal form and should expand on the author’s design choices with particular regard for how working in an alternate genre helps engage the issue’s theme.

Please also include the contributor’s full name, academic affiliation, and email address. If you have any further questions, please feel free to email us at
