The New Essay, a new online series from The Journal, seeks well-crafted essays between 2,000-4,000 words. Ideally, we're looking for essays that blend the personal and political, essays that feel urgent and necessary. We're especially seeking work from marginalized voices, including disabled writers, writers of color, and writers from the LGBTQ community. We'll be publishing one essay each month, and we look forward to seeing your best work. 

All work submitted to The New Essay will also be considered for publication in the Nonfiction section of The Journal.
