NU Writing is an online journal that publishes compositions made in First-Year Writing and Advanced Writing in the Disciplines, courses that are part of Northeastern University’s Writing Program. NU Writing helps students find a wider audience for their compositions and experience publishing, both by learning about the submission and review process and by participating on the journal’s board. Compositions published in NU Writing are alphabetic and multimodal—written in verse or prose, or composed in multiple modalities, such as image and sound.

No 12 (2021): Antiracism and Justice

For this issue, we chose “Antiracism and Justice” to invite Northeastern writers who are already invested in antiracist praxis and imagining how to restructure unjust systems. We define antiracism as dismantling racist institutions — educational, social, government, economic, and health — in order to prioritize racial justice and equity. Antiracism is an ongoing commitment in our individual, community, professional, and organizational practices to abolish racist systems and policies. The main goal of anti-racism is to reshape systems, but this work is crucial in our homes and everyday lives (excerpt from "Note from the Editors").
