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 We do not publish academic papers, but we are excited about pieces that highlight rigorous, methodological, evidence-based research that relies on critical analysis.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 related to the seasonal theme.

The Peace Chronicle’s Youth Art, Poetry, Story and Essay Competition!

For Theme: Re-Enchantment

Categories:

A (Ages 10 and below)
B (11- 13 years old)
C (14 and above)

The world is full of crises; from pollution and climate change, to violence and wars, to mental health issues spreading, it is often easy to lose hope. The idea of Re-Enchantment asks us to fall in love with the world again. How can we connect with the environment and other animals, each other and ourselves with more magic and hope? How can we imagine a world, or change our perspective on our own lives so that it is more fun and loving? How can we become better neighbors and friends to one another? How can we change the world to a more peaceful, beautiful place for all? We would love to hear your ideas! Winners of the competition will be published in the Spring issue of the Peace Chronicle hosted by the Peace and Justice Studies Association amongst scholars, artists and activists in May.

General Article Submission Information

We’re looking for pieces written in journalistic style, that will interest a broad range of readers and give them ideas and inspiration they can use. Submissions may be emailed to pjsapeacechronicle@gmail.com as Microsoft Word files, and will be reviewed by the editor. We accept poetry and personal essays, as well as visual artworks.

The Peace Chronicle is an opportunity for PJSA folks to publish and collaborate. Therefore, we are also excited to publish non-traditional forms such as programs and projects, or other commentaries on peace and justice work, our world, or our struggles. This form of association-wide publishing makes for a more dynamic, diverse and engaging magazine that reflects the PJSA network.

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

Please include in your submission:

  • Your written piece, as a Word document (not a PDF)
  • Any image(s) you wish to accompany your piece (see below for details)
  • A 100-150 word mini-bio
  • Your headshot, sized to 150 x 150px
