  • Submit for the Razor x RealTalk Collab

    RealTalk and the Razor are collaborating to create a space in the Razor for community members to share a short reflection that highlights any aspect of their identity or experience. We hope this platform will promote discussions on campus that lead to powerful conversations and create meaningful change. Entries are not meant to be long essays, but rather written or artistic work on a topic of our choice. Submissions for the RealTalk x Razor Collab will be considered separately from the RealTalk Speaker Series submissions. Submissions will be reviewed by a small group of RealTalk and Razor members, who may reach out to you for clarification or to workshop your submission as needed. You may choose to submit you work to be published anonymously or have your name published alongside your entry. Submit through this link.
