If you have something you'd like to put in a letter to the editor -
perhaps a short anecdote, comment, question, or the like - email us.

If you could contribute an article, essay, poem, review, etc. for the
next edition of the Journal, please see our Call for Papers:


We need a designer to create a great-looking template for the journal
- that is, everything but the article texts. This includes everything
from a well-styled nameplate and logo to footnotes and font choices to
masthead layout. Basically, everything needed such that we can drop in
the final article text, titles, etc for this issue (and all issues to
come) and it'll look awesome.

Here's the full spec:

We're also looking for good art to include on the cover and elsewhere.
Either your own work if you're an artist, or something good you've
found online that is licensed to allow commercial re-use.

If either of these sounds like something you or someone you know could
help us with, please let us know.
