The Writing for Change Journal accepting student submissions through March 31

The Writing for Change Journal is accepting submissions for its fourth collection through Friday, March 31, 2023. Visit the journal’s website for complete information about the theme and submission guidelines for this edition.


The fourth collection of the Writing for Change Journal centers on the most significant and wide-reaching form of change that there is today: climate change. We are interested in submissions that reflect the nuanced ways we experience climate change, how we think about impact, and how our research and daily experiences of climate change enrich our collective understanding and responsibility. Read the full theme on the journal’s website.

Cover photography

Typically, representations of nature/nonhumans are used as cover art for each collection of the Writing for Change Journal. If you are a regional photographer and you have a photo that you think captures the tone of this collection’s theme, please consider submitting.
