Submit a Piece

Submissions are currently closed for Issue III of The Cross Section. We are always looking for submissions, though, and encourage writers and artists to submit for the next issue.

If you would like to submit a piece to The Cross Section for publication, email the senior editors at Please include your name, school, class standing, and a Word document (or similar file type) of your submission in the email. All submissions must be related to the Nordic countries in some way and can belong to any genre and consist of any medium. Submitters must be undergraduates, or within a year of graduation of their undergraduate career, and can attend any university. The entire editing process can be done digitally, so even those who do not attend UW-Madison can easily participate.

Those who would like to submit should keep in mind that the journal is published towards the end of the spring semester and it takes a few months to peer review, edit, and design the pieces in the journal. Submissions will be distributed to peer reviewers and editors as they come in, so the sooner submissions are received, the better.
