We welcome stories, poetry, photography, artwork, interviews, and articles for consideration in the magazine. We also welcome audio files, video links, and article submission for the News blog.
We are committed to nurturing and supporting young Native writers by providing a forum for their work. We encourage young and/or unpublished writers to submit work. All submissions will be reviewed by our nonjudgmental, friendly editorial staff and will receive a response.
Think you have a great story idea, but are afraid to write it? Send us the idea and we can offer writing guidance, developmental editing, and support. Many of our greatest pieces have come from community members who did not consider themselves writers.
