    I submitted pictures for a photographic essay last year for an issue that was supposed to be released in January. Did that ever get published or are you guys still trying to get things ready to start over?

    Would love an update if you have time.

    Thanks

      Hi Jill,

      That’s a great question! SA has undergone some structural changes, which has caused some delays, but we are back into a regular schedule now. We should have the 2018/2019 issue published by the end of the academic year! I will be emailing the people who submitted last year soon with a more specific update.
      Thanks for your patience!
