Description of Neta Journal

Neta Journal is our bilingual magazine on arts, identity, and politics in the Rio Grande Valley. While we update new online content daily, Neta Journal is a physical space for us to display our work with more careful and in-depth insight away from the distractions and limits of digital work.

Neta Journal is meant to bridge the gaps of the digital divide of our borderland. It is meant to provoke and challenge our readers on today’s problems and suggest radical solutions.  It’s our unfiltered experiences, discoveries, and observations. It is our megaphone as we shout our own narratives and we try to drain out the media circus about what the border should be and how we ought to be.

Write for Neta Journal

Neta is searching for writers, photographers, artists, cartoonists, and all types of print storytellers from the Rio Grande Valley to submit work for Neta Journal for our first edition to be published in the first week of May 2017. Storytellers of all ages and experience levels are welcome.

To send a story pitch for the Neta Journal, send a description of 150 words or less on the story you are interested in submitting to and include your resume. (Your published story can be more than 150 words– just keep the description short when you pitch your story.) Some of the topics we are interested in are gender, race, sexuality, immigration, radical politics, abortion, accessibility, class, border history, and feminism.

All work will be compensated based on the assignment. The deadline to send pitches is Friday, March 31, 2017 at 11 AM central. The only requirement is for you to be from or live in the Rio Grande Valley.
