Editorial Focus

About Place Journal is the literary publication of the Black Earth Institute. BEI is dedicated to art serving the causes of spirit, earth, and society. Issues are guest-edited by fellows of the Institute. Themes (titles of issues) are chosen by the editors. They seek pieces that relate to the specific call but always reflect literature that speaks in such a way to awaken us and help create a better world.

Tips From the Editor

Please stick to the guidelines and to the specifics of the call. We are looking for engaged art that shows the way to a better world. Art can help move us there.
