We’re whipping up a special issue on food, and we invite you to join the party.

Submit a proposal for a 3200-word feature article, or a tasty morsel for one our departments: Jargon, Q&A, Mediations, Trends, or Unplugged. Possible topics include: the politics of food production; cuisine and social distinctions; food movements; “food deserts;” poverty and health; and many others.

If you’re interested, please consult the author submission guidelines, and submit your proposals by October 1, 2013. We look forward to seeing what you’ve cooked up!
