Thank you for being a member of the Peace and Justice Studies Association and for continuing to support such important work in these tumultuous times. Our editorial team accepts member contributions for consideration in the Peace Chronicle on a rolling basis. The Chronicle is a coproduction of a collective effort and a shared reflection that showcases the amazing work our members are engaged in.

The Peace Chronicle aims to engage diverse populations including academics, activists, community leaders, and religious leaders. We welcome submissions dealing with peace and justice issues in the classroom, on the ground, in research, arts, and culture. We do not publish academic papers but we are excited about pieces that highlight rigorous, methodological, evidence-based research that relies on critical analysis. We are interested in national, international, and global issues, including but not limited to: ecology and environmental justice, white supremacy, Islamophobia, anti-semitism, racism, police violence, war, inequality, women’s rights, and free speech.

Do you have an idea for an issue, or want to submit an article?

We’re looking for pieces written in journalistic style between 500 and 1,500 words that will interest a broad range of readers and give them ideas and inspiration they can use. Submissions may be sent as Microsoft Word files and will be reviewed by the editor. We accept poetry and personal essays. We do not publish academic papers.

Unfortunately, at this time we cannot pay our authors, artists, or photographers, but we will publish a contributor bio and link to your website.

Send us your contribution as a word document in an email attachment.
