Call for Submissions
Common Magazine

Call for Submissions:
Writing from the
Farmworker Community

In collaboration with guest co-editor Miguel M. Morales, The Common will publish a portfolio of writing from the farmworker and farm laborer community: the migrant, seasonal, and often immigrant laborers who make up much of the US agricultural workforce.

We invite original, unpublished work from current and former farmworkers of all ages, as well as those raised in farmworker families who experienced the stories and effects of this work through their parents or other relations. Pieces may be submitted in English or Spanish. For work in other languages, please arrange to have at least two pages translated into English as a sample.

We offer space to work that voices the diversity of farmwork and farmworkers, and their wide range of experiences—the physical, emotional, and financial struggles, the dangers and injustices, but also the rituals and celebrations, and the profound strength, skill, ingenuity, and resilience that are essential to
this life.

Submissions open August 15, 2022 and close February 1, 2023. Payment for accepted work is $200 for prose pieces and $40 per poem.
