Everything You Always Wanted to Know About North Avenue Review* (*But Were Afraid to Ask).
North Avenue Review (NAR) is Georgia Tech’s open forum magazine. Established in 1989, we launched in response to student protests against Tiananmen Square. Our mission is to amplify all voices of the Tech community by providing a platform to share thoughts, opinions, poetry, artwork, or anything in between. NAR accepts all submissions and covers everything between social issues, satires, photography, memes, and more. We are always open to receiving more submissions about any topic in any format and will do our best to share it with the rest of the Tech community, whether that includes print and/or online publishing. If you are interested in becoming a staff member, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org! We do not collect any membership fees, and there are no obligations to staying in the org. You are welcome to join at any time!
Print copies can be picked up at the following locations:
You can also read NAR issues online here.
Traditionally, we have met in the Publications Office at 4:15 p.m. on Fridays. However, while Tech functions in a hybrid-curriculum mode, we will meet virtually over an hour-long BlueJeans meet on Sundays at 6 p.m. Please reach out to email@example.com if you’re interested in attending a meeting and we’ll be happy to have you join!
You don’t need to be a member of NAR in order to contribute. You can contribute as much or as little as you’d like in whatever 2-dimensional medium you prefer (i.e. articles, poems, photography, short-story fiction, memes, artwork, collages, GIFs, video, audio, etc.).
However, if you’d like to join NAR, there are three teams. Read the description for each team and reach out to the respective team editor for which team you are most interested in joining! You do not have to do all that is defined in Content or Marketing. These two teams have more scope, so you can specialize in one area if you’d like. (Note: there exists some cross-over between teams, but you are responsible for only one team. For example, if you’re in Marketing, you can still submit a piece for the magazine, or if you’re in Layout, you can develop a graphic to be used for Marketing purposes like social media.)
Traditionally, we published one issue per semester. We are shifting towards a seasonal release schedule, which will double our magazine printing output. However, as a result of the current hybrid-curriculum status at Tech, we may decide to publish less or more depending on the circumstances we are facing. We will publish online exclusive content sporadically.
We accept almost anything that can be represented in print and/or online. This can include written articles, photography, poetry, artwork, videos, audio, etc.
We are also allowed to publish profanity, sensitive topics, etc. Please be mindful that we reserve the right to reject a piece if we believe it will cause legal/nonlegal damage to our organization, the Board of Student Publications, and/or the Institute. However, we will do our best to work with you to discuss options for how to pursue pieces with sensitive subjects.
We publish in both! You can find our online-exclusive material here.
We ask that only Georgia Tech students, alumni, faculty, or staff submit.
Yes! We (at least the Editor in Chief and Content Editor) will have to know who you are in order to work with you and your submission, but we can publish your piece anonymously.
All you need to do is submit your work here!
