We know there's lots of great Quaker writing that doesn't fit any of the topics in our upcoming issues list. We leave a few issues a year "open" to general interest articles that come in. 

Please note: All poetry should be submitted separately here.
How do we spend money on ourselves? What is the role of money in our meetings? How do we decide whether to invest, provide services, or renovate? Due July 9, 2018.

Note: All poetry submissions here.
Have you ever found a worn, foxed book in a dusty meetinghouse shelf or been told of an obscure book that changed your life? Tell us about the books that have changed how you look at the world. Due August 6, 2018.

It’s a question that has dogged Friends since we did away with clergy and started calling baptism a “sprinkling,” and it has been an issue of contention in every Quaker schism: Are we Christian? Are we really Christian? Does it matter if we’re Christian? What does it even mean to be Christian in the world? Due September 10, 2018.

Note: All poetry submissions here.
We talk and talk about race in our own spiritual society. We name committees, hold audits, host conferences and yet... change is achingly slow. How do we build out the beloved community in our spiritual home. What are Friends doing to bring diversities into our meetinghouses? Due October 1, 2018.

Note: All poetry submissions here.

It can be comforting to talk amongst ourselves and debate nuances of Quaker lingo in Quaker conferences, but what happens when we move outside our meetinghouse walls? How do our values follow us into the world? Due December 3, 2018.

Note: All poetry submissions here.

So how many Quakers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Share your corniest Quaker jokes but also tell us stories of humor overcoming differences and building bridges. Due January 7, 2019.
