NYM Journal header: Friends Enlightening Friends

The NYM Journal, “Friends Enlightening Friends” was initiated in February 2019 through Spring 2024, and has been published 2-3 times/year on our website. At this time we plan to change the format of the Journal, but we are on hold until we find a new editor.

The NYM Journal is in need of a new editor!

We plan to change the format, which will make the editor’s role much simpler. Content will be accepted and published online on a rolling basis, rather than together in a scheduled publication. This will allow for more genres such as videos and podcasts! The editor’s role will mainly be to review content that is submitted and suggest changes if needed. New pieces will be posted with the assistance of the Web Clerk and announced in the monthly e-news.

If you are interested, please contact: webclerk@northernyearlymeeting.org


Mission of the NYM Journal: To inform & inspire Friends with examples of Quaker faith and practice.

*You can submit content to nymjournal@gmail.com if you wish, although we don’t know when it will be published.

Content suggestions: (these will be revised to include more genres once we find a new editor)

  1. Personal reflections & articles about people’s work & experience as a Quaker.
  2. Reflections or stories about projects or efforts your Meeting or Worship Group is involved with.
  3. Examples of creative works include: Reflections, poetry, personal insights, stories of personal life experiences, expressions of concern about current affairs, book reviews, letters to the editor. Children’s work is welcome.
  4. We encourage original work from Northern Yearly Meeting Friends, but we will accept some submissions from elsewhere if it’s relevant to us or something that an individual in NYM is involved with.

Please limit articles to 1500 words, and feel free to include a suggested image. Ideally all submissions should be in MS Word or compatible word processor, single spaced. Contact nymjournal@gmail.com with questions.
