CALL FOR MANUSCRIPTS
New Jersey English Journal, a peer-reviewed publication of The New Jersey Council of Teachers of English, invites you to share submissions on “Professional Growth: What’s Inspiring?”
We seek researched articles as well as 500-word personal essays and other creative responses that shed light on the many possibilities, topics, issues, problems and solutions related to professional growth and inspiration in teaching K-12 and college. Articles should relate directly to English Language Arts teaching and learning.  We value responses from both veteran and new teachers.
We invite you to respond to the theme of “Professional Growth: What’s Inspiring?” by considering such questions as:
Where do teachers find inspiration? (e.g., peers, workshops, education programs, mentors, books, articles, journals, and films)?
How can educators feel passionate and/or inspired about their jobs despite the standardization of teaching and other challenges to creativity?
What can teachers do to keep their passion for teaching alive, and/or continue to grow professionally?
What role does a teacher’s outlook or perspective play in student learning?
What teaching methods help teachers feel inspired and inspiring?
What else can teachers do to take care of themselves during challenging times - both at work and at home?
In addition to submissions that respond to the theme, we also welcome poetry on the topic of teaching.
Submissions will be accepted between April 1 and December 15, 2016.  Submissions should not have been published in any other journal. Submissions must use MLA formatting and Time New Roman or Garamond Font in Size 12.  All submissions will be reviewed by multiple members of our editorial board.  Submitters will receive a response by February 1, 2017; journal will be released by April 1, 2017.  Send queries and submissions to 2017 journal editor Liz deBeer at ldebeerwardell@gmail.com.
