Call for Submissions on Homophobia: Dialogue Spring 2012 "Diversity" Issue

Post date: 23 April 2011
Deadline: 10 May 2011

We welcome your ideas and article proposals on how schools are addressing diversity, our new theme for the 2012 issue of Dialogue. The growing concerns about discrimination, racial prejudice, homophobia, religious intolerance, gender-based violence and (cyber)bullying in our diverse school communities make this issue more urgent than ever before. Read more on why private schools need to start a national dialogue on diversity.

Spring 2012 issue: Diversity

How is your school responding to the needs of an increasingly diverse community through your curriculum, policies, programs, guidelines, teacher training, practices, lessons and teachings inside and outside the classroom?

Submit your ideas & article proposals on Diversity:

* Cultural, racial, religious.

* Social, Socioeconomic

* Special needs and disabilities

* Body image and appearance

* Gender or sexual orientation


* an article proposal

* blog post

* e-newsletter article

Do you have an article idea that fits with this theme?
 Article proposals for Dialogue should be brief—one type-written page or less—and include your full name; current position; home and work addresses; work and home telephone numbers; email address; and a brief bio that includes any qualifications. Email your proposals to EDITOR@OURKIDS.NET. We are accepting proposals for the 2012 edition of Dialogue until May 10, 2011. All articles after May 10 will still be considered for publication online and in the e-newsletter throughout the year.

Editorial procedure

Our Editorial Advisory Board review all submissions. All reference to your identity, organization or school will be removed from article proposals prior to reviewing. After notification of your article acceptance, the editor will work with you to establish a detailed article outline, finalize the length and deadline details before you proceed with the actual writing. The subsequent editing process will involve at least one more conversation, copy-edit, final review and sign-off by you, the author. We will do our best to reply to all proposals in a timely fashion.
