Yes! LURe accepts any papers written during the author’s undergraduate years. We open submissions in the fall semester, so if you graduated in the spring or summer of that year, you are welcome to submit any papers written prior to your graduation.

If you’re interested in joining the LURe Team as an editor, you must be an undergraduate or graduate student from the University of West Georgia, where our journal is hosted. Most team members are English majors or minors, and communication-based majors are preferred, though we encourage anyone to inquire despite their program.
