Submit for the Digital Blog

The HJHP Digital Blog accepts submissions of policy opinion pieces, perspectives, and classroom essays throughout the academic year (September-April).

  1. Opinion Pieces are brief essays between 500 and 750 words that provide readers with persuasive commentary on a timely and relevant issue facing Latinx communities at the local, state, or national level.
  2. Policy Perspectives are brief essays between 500-750 words from practitioners that provide readers unique insights and/or best practices relating to public policy, social, and cultural issues facing Latinx communities at the local, state or national level. HJHP defines practitioners as individual who are currently working in the field they are writing about.
  3. Classroom Essays are pieces between 750 and 1,500 words that provide emerging scholars an opportunity to submit their classroom assignments for publishing in our digital blog. HJHP gives priority to emerging scholars, defined as undergraduate and graduate students.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Include references where appropriate. HJHP asks that you link to sources where applicable and/or cite academic sources in footnotes using Chicago Manual of Style standards.
  • Selected authors for both digital blog may be asked to perform additional fact-checking or editing before publication; compliance with these procedures is required for publication.
  • HJHP accepts excellent pieces that have been published in other outlets.

Unfortunately, because of the large volume of messages we receive, we have to pass on much material of value and interest. If you do not hear from us within three business days, you should feel free to offer it elsewhere. Please contact us at:
