Focus and Scope

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. NU Writing welcomes traditional essays as well as texts from alternate genres: for example, poems, photo-essays, digital narratives, and films. All currently matriculated students who have taken, or are taking, courses in the Writing Program are encouraged to participate, by submitting a composition or serving on the journal’s board or both. Explore, take part, and enjoy!

Peer Review Process

NU Writing uses a blind review process (meaning that students' identities remain unknown to editors as they decide which compositions to publish).

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
