WHO CAN SUBMIT CONTRIBUTIONS?
We are looking for text associated with both human and physical geography. The texts can be connected for example politics, art, geology, cartography, history, anthropology, etc. etc. Geografier is a platform where a master thesis or other academic project is re-written and published as an article or essay. Non-academic writers are also welcome to submit texts or contact ut. We love poetry, music and fiction as well!

We are also looking for photos, illustrations and images. These may be linked to a text but we will also give space where images can be independent, with own visual interpretations of the theme. If you are interested to illustrate the texts of others, contact the editing board.
