Magazine Contributions

You can contribute ideas, articles, poems, photos, art, etc. for an upcoming issue of Western Friend by clicking on the "contact us" button in the footer of this web page. Upcoming magazines will be organized around the following themes:

We accept manuscripts for online publication at any time.

Western Friend publishes articles that are intended to be of interest both to Quaker newcomers and "seasoned Friends."

Submitted manuscripts for print publication should be somewhat longer than 600, 1300, or 2100 words.

* It is possible that we will have received and accepted enough submissions to fill the print edition before this deadline arrives. However, we have a practice of publishing "supplemental" articles online to accompany our print editions.
