Spring 2020 journal submission deadline has passed. The next submission deadline will be in the fall of 2021.
We produce and distribute four journals every year – all of which are written, designed, and staffed by Gonzaga students. Learn a little more about each below.
Gonzaga's journal of culture and diversity features the experiences of adjusting – and not adjusting – to the cultural climate of Gonzaga University. Published once a year, Our Voices is always looking for submissions that encompass a diverse mosaic of creative, thought-provoking, and inspiring material from around campus. Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome to submit material for consideration.
Email the Our Voices staff with questions or if you would like to submit material.
Our Voices Journals
Reflection is Gonzaga's journal of art and literature, with poetry, short fiction, photography, artwork, and more. Published in various forms since 1960, Reflection has been a medium of expression and creativity for the Gonzaga community since its inception.
Poetry, fiction, and other types of literature have always been the mainstays of the journal, with original artwork first appearing around 1967. Music was introduced in 2010 for the 50th Anniversary edition on an attached CD. Reflection also features the winners and honorable mention of the Michael and Gail Gurian Writing Awards, which recognize excellence in original poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction written by GU undergraduate students.
Email the Reflection staff with questions or to submit an original piece for consideration.
Charter is Gonzaga's journal of scholarship and opinion published once a year. Each edition is typically centered around a theme and this year’s theme is Variation. Submissions this year can directly address the idea of Variation. The journal as a whole will represent Variation, so Charter is also accepting pieces—including essays previously written for class—on a variety of subjects. The pieces published in Charter include academic essays, opinion pieces with citations, and personal narratives that incorporate outside research to strengthen their argument. Faculty, Staff, Students and Alumni of Gonzaga are welcome to submit pieces for consideration.
One World is a social justice themed journal that explores issues that affect people locally, nationally and globally.
