We are looking for articles from social work practitioners, educators, and students! We especially want manuscripts that present social work ethics, field placement, and practice specialties in an educational, creative, and readable format. Articles are typically 1,500-2,000 words and are written in an educational, conversational tone, as if you are sitting down with a colleague to talk about a social work issue.

We also want short news items about student social work clubs/organizations, as well as other social work-related news, with photos.

Additionally, we will consider poetry, artwork, and other forms of creative work that relate to social work!

The deadline for consideration for the next issue is August 15. Please send all submissions and/or ideas to me at: lindagrobman at socialworker dot com

Please let your colleagues, classmates, and/or students know about THE NEW SOCIAL WORKER, and the fact that it is a FREE social work resource. Feel free to pass along the download links above, and let them know that they can subscribe free to receive notifications of future issues.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you!
