Call for Submissions: Black History Month

We’re reaching out to students and student groups ahead of February to let them know about our plans for Black History Month.

It’s our goal to have at least one full page of Black History Month content in each of our February issues (16, 17, and 18). This means we need at least two full articles per issue. To do that we need your help.

For each issue we’re looking for anything from personal essays, to historical pieces, to opinion pieces, to news articles, or anything else that falls under a very broad interpretation of Black History Month. We don’t want to exclude non-writers so we’re open to submissions of any graphical content as well (especially “traditional” newspaper content like cartoons and photography).

There will be three opportunities to submit. The deadlines are as follows:

Issue 16: January 28 Extended until January 30 at 5pm

Issue 17: February 4

Issue 18: February 18

Individuals interested in submitting are more than welcome to contact us if they want any more information or to discuss ideas by email (, in person at our office Monday and Wednesday-Friday 11-4pm, or at one of our story meetings Wednesdays at 5pm at the Trend Pub in Traill College.
