What is Radical Social Work and
How is it Relevant to your Community Today?

Essay Contest sponsored by Journal of Progressive Human Services

The Editorial Collective of the Journal of Progressive Human Services: Radical Thought and Practice (JPHS) wishes to ignite a discussion among our student readers about the activities, ideas, and policies that define, or should define, radical social work in today’s economic, political, and social contexts. What are the particular challenges to, and opportunities for, radical practice, in your community?

Toward that end, JPHS is funding an essay contest for all three levels of study in social work– BSW, MSW, and DSW/PhD– with a cash award of $1000.00 for one winning essay in each category of student. In addition, JPHS will also publish the 3 winning essays in our internationally-subscribed journal.

Essays should be between 1000-1500 words and respond to the question “What is radical social work, and how is it relevant to your community today?” If you cite the literature, please use APA format for citations and references. Please contact Elisa Orme with any questions at eorme@une.edu.

Please submit your essay as a word document attached to an email addressed to kgifford@une.edu by March 31th. Please put “Essay for JPHS Submission” in the subject line of your email. In the body of the email please include your name and preferred email address. Do not include your name on your essay so that we can do a blind review. Winners will be notified by May 15.
