Universal Write Publications represent the voices of the African Diaspora by publishing and promoting academic books and articles that enhance literacy and broaden worldviews through collective research using interdisciplinary theories with an emphasis on African and Black-centered scholarship.
The UWP Community Blog invites professional educators, community leaders, activists, philosophers, and creative theorists to submit social, anthological, and ethnographical content that dignifies the rich histories of the culturally diverse peoples who make up our society.

Authors may also be invited to participate in future events and panel discussions with partner organizations.
What we want:
- Articles from experts in fields related to Black and African-centered topics.
- Articles that offer a fresh, interesting take on higher education, social justice, legacy building, international and national stories, and Afrocentricity.
- Use citations and links to articles and sources that give the reader more context.
- UWP also accepts actionable, tips-based pieces, expert-backed trends pieces, and personal stories that are positioned as advice to graduate students, and community leaders
- Strong writing that matches our voice and style (think, professional, insightful, but conversational and thought-provoking).
