Call for Submissions

Be Part of Toxic Times

Books and pine trees

As part of the Houston Diluvial project sponsored by the Center for Environmental Studies (CES) at Rice University, we are inviting contributions to our channel "Toxic Times," an archive of the everyday stories concerning encounters with toxicity. We welcome contributions from a wide variety of media, including but not necessarily limited to: video and sound posts, 250 to 500-word mini reflections, 500–1000 word opinion pieces, and creative work and writing. Please consider checking out one of the inspirations for this channel: Emily Raboteau's This Is How We Live Now, a year of very brief entries that reflect on the lived realities of climate change. Thank you in advance for your submission, and we will be in touch within a week of submission updating you on the process of review.
