The Global Observer is a print and online publication committed to exploring global issues and trends. Written by Tulane students, alumni, faculty or staff authors of diverse backgrounds and perspectives, each print issue will explore a theme. Our goal is to collect a myriad of writing that will illustrate the similarities and differences of region, geography and citizenship. The first issue of The Global Observer was published in spring 2018. Check it out!
What kind of topics or articles are we looking for? Here are some ideas:
These questions are just the tip of the iceberg! We are open to and interested in this topic from many different angles and perspectives.
We'll accept articles, first-person narratives, photo essays - even creative fiction and poetry! Please limit text submissions to three pages (approximately 1500 words). If your submission is longer, please email Meredith Connelly (email@example.com) to discuss the possibility of including a longer piece on the website.
Writing for the Global Observer is a great opportunity to reflect on your intercultural experiences, as well as to gain a publication credit! This exposure will be especially useful if you would consider travel writing in the future to earn money! CGE staff will work with you throughout the editorial process to produce a great piece of writing and will publish your work online and in a print anthology at the end of the spring semester.
If you are interested in submitting an article or photo essay to be included in the second volume of the Global Observer, please fill out this Submission Interest Form. We will collect submissions and pitches over the summer and into the fall!
If you have any questions, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
