CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
The Between Cities journal is seeking submissions for our Fall 2021 issue. The submissions should engage with the Christian tradition. Submissions can take the form of essays, creative pieces, media reviews, interviews, or artwork. We are primarily accepting submissions from the University of Minnesota community but will consider work from those outside it. Please submit proposals by March 12.
Proposals should be 100-300 words long.
To submit your work please visit the Google Form below and upload your proposal:
Types of Submissions
Articles of 1,000 to 3,000 words consist of original work discussing academics from a Christian perspective, the relationship between faith and study or work, or the relevance of Christianity to the modern world. Articles can be scholarly in nature—advancing a significant thesis with appropriate citations—or less formal—including anecdotes and personal reflection.
Media reviews of 250-750 words provide Christian commentary on recently released books or movies of interest to our audience, though the works reviewed need not necessarily be Christian themselves. The review should contain a concise synopsis of the work in question, an appraisal of its technical quality, and an evaluation of its themes or purport.
Creative works may include poems and short fiction of less than 2,000 words. Such works should not only address spiritual matters, but also employ technical sophistication to interest, challenge, or surprise the reader.
Art and photography need not be explicitly religious in subject matter, but may originate from a Christian aesthetic sensibility or demonstrate engagement with questions of ultimate significance.
