Author Guidelines


Eligibility:  Undergraduate students currently enrolled at Northeastern University may submit compositions made in either First-Year Writing or Advanced Writing in the Disciplines.

Formatting: Submissions may be of various lengths. Submissions may be in "traditional" journal-article format or may be multimodal. Multiple citation styles are acceptable: MLA, APA, Chicago, etc. The format and citation style must be appropriate for the content, audience, and genre. 

Process: Students submit their work to the journal online. NU Writing uses a blind review process (meaning that students’ identities remain unknown to editors as they decide which compositions to publish).

Authors are responsible for the originality of their material and for obtaining any necessary permissions before publication in NU Writing.
