Want to have your work read around the world? The Social Justice Review (SJR), a journal sponsored by the USC Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics, is now accepting outstanding submissions for publication in our Summer 2019 issue.

As a global platform for social justiceThe Social Justice Review offers a forum for undergraduates worldwide who engage—utilizing the written word—with issues of ethnicity, socio-economic status, gender, religion, or other social issues or inequalities.

We seek mindfully-crafted undergraduate submissions that resonate with our socially conscious readership—academic, fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, memoir, hybrid prose, photography, etc. We believe in the power of research, narrative, and storytelling as a means of advocating for a more socially just world.
