Submit A Creative Work

Awaken invites the submission of creative bioethics works from all interested authors, including professors, students, and nonacademic professionals. Submissions on all topics related to bioethics will be considered, and the journal encourages authors to be as creative as possible in their exploration of contemporary issues in bioethics.

Submissions of all lengths will be considered, though, as with other publications, Awaken favors shorter works of approximately 5,000-10,000 words (with a preference for works under 7,500 words). Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.

Submissions by US Mail are not accepted absent special arrangements.
