Over the last two generations, the food system has increasingly become “controlled” by the international market. Farmers are pushed further into debt; diabetes and chronic illness plagues communities across the globe; and entire countries are faced with famine and starvation while their governments continue to export grains.
For our next issue, we welcome submissions on any topic related to food, food politics, and the implications of the current food system. We are also interested in your art, poetry, and short stories about your relationship to food. Submission deadline will be January 6th, 2012.
You can also send us letters to the editor(s), campus and community events, photos (w/ proper credit), and drawings or designs. Please submit all articles, photos, community event notices, and art to firstname.lastname@example.org. All general inquiries and submissions can be sent to: email@example.com.
Suggested word counts: News: 50 to 750 words; Features: max 2000 words; Comments: max 1200 words; Arts: max 1500 words.
