contact email: 

Whether you're a new or a seasoned faculty member, your voice can make a difference in the success of your fellow-faculty as well as your students. The Atrium seeks your reflections of challenges and successes in your classroom. Our journal invites you to submit

• innovative, creative, and critical narrative essays
• research-based articles across the disciplines
• limited creative poetry and fiction
• book reviews and website reviews

Appropriate articles demonstrate to readers the practical application of research and creative ideas! Material published has dealt with broad issues that connect classroom to culture and to community.

The Atrium is not your run-of-the-mill academic journal! It is a unique, cross-disciplinary electronic journal that seeks to engage readers at both two-year and four-year colleges. We do not accept previously-published material. Please do not submit sections of your thesis, dissertation, or any coursework papers. Please limit your articles to 5,000 words. The journal has published consistently since 2010.


To view our current and archived issues, to read the current submission guidelines, and to submit your work, please go to . Questions may be addressed to Nancy Riecken, Managing Editor of The Atrium, at
