Many issues of Friends Journal are set aside for specific themes but we also publish articles on "Quaker Thought and LIfe Today" that don't follow this schedule. Sometimes a choice is easy: we’ll get a blockbuster article that we know we just have to print. But just as often we’ll run some quiet piece of Quaker life. 

Our next Open issue will be February 2021. Deadline for submissions is November 23, 2020.

Please be aware that since we only run two un-themed issues a year, response times can be longer on these, from 2-3 months.
