Call for Submissions

URBAN Magazine is seeking writing submissions for the Fall 2021 issue: Metamorphosis. As URBAN marks its 20th year and the world grapples with what shape our future will take, the editors ask our GSAPP peers how they imagine the future of urban life.

Example pitch topics could include, but are not limited to: * transformation, evolution * longevity, perpetuity, survival * looking forward and onwards after a period of significant change (i.e. transitioning in the context of the pandemic)

We encourage all to participate. We welcome any form of writing. If you are interested in contributing to this issue, please send us a short pitch (couple sentences ~ paragraph) of your ideas to urban.submissions@gmail.com by Tuesday, September 14.

Once you submit a pitch, you will be paired with an editor to help polish your writing. First drafts will be due by October 4 and final drafts will be due by October 25.

Please see the previous online editions of our most recent volumes, Dialogues (Fall 2020) & Reimagine (Spring 2021).

If you have any questions about submitting an article, please do not hesitate to send us an email at the address above, or you may reach us at @urban.magazine_gsapp on Instagram.
