How to submit to Kairos

Kairos publishes twice yearly. The fall issue explores a theme chosen by the editorial board, while the spring issue features the best general interest reporting and analysis generated by Journalism and Media Studies classes.

Fall 2017

Our 2016-2017 editorial theme will be “transformations,” interpreted in any way our students and their professors choose. Stories of neighborhood, political and social change; and of personal, spiritual, intellectual or physical change; are all fair game.

General Interest Stories

We also aim to feature the best articles, analysis, photography, video and data journalism our classes develop, on any topic likely to be of interest to a state, national or global audience. We encourage professors to submit their students’ standout pieces, even if they don’t relate to the annual theme.


The best time to submit a piece is toward, or just after, semester’s end. We’re always eager to feature good stories.

Beyond this, the final deadline for submissions to the spring 2017 general interest issue is January 6, 2017, and the deadline for submissions to Transformations is May 12, 2017.
