We are now accepting submissions for the Fall 2015 issue.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, October 16, 2015. Submissions should be emailed in Word(.docx), or .pdf format to, or mailed with an electronic copy, to:

We welcome well-written, undergraduate papers on any philosophical topic. We prefer papers of approximately three to five thousand words. Essays should be original, unpublished, and must not be in submission elsewhere. Authors must be undergraduates during the semester of publication. We are also soliciting short critical notices (five to fifteen hundred words) criticizing articles in the current and recent issues of Aporia. All submissions must be formatted for blind review. For each submission include two documents: your submission stripped of all identifying information, and a cover page stating your name, title of submission, university affiliation, email address, and postal address.
