Submissions – Issue XII

Global Impressions publishes short reflective essays (500-750 words) by members of the Smith College community that address what it means to be a global citizen today.

The Global Impressions editorial team is pleased to announce that the theme of our Spring 2018 Issue XII is “Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone.” Whether crossing oceans and traversing unfamiliar lands for the first time or returning to home soil, traveling forces us to be brave.  Tell us about a time during your global travels when you were forced to step out of your comfort zone: What cultural, linguistic, or personal challenges did you confront? What fears did you have to overcome? How did taking risks change your perspective or your overall experience?

The deadline for submissions is April 13, 2018.
