Friends Journal Issue Themes

Starting in 2012, Friends Journal began announcing themes for most of our upcoming issues. Every 18 months or so, we poll readers for topics that they’d like to see in our pages. Please check our Submissions page for the most up-to-date list of upcoming themes or email us at [email protected] to send suggestions for future issues.
