The fall 2001 issue of Fortune News will focus on issues related to crack cocaine, and is seeking submissions. Fortune News is the quarterly journal of the Fortune Society, a New York City-based nonprofit organization founded in 1967 to serve the needs of those incarcerated or are at risk of incarceration and to educate the public about prison conditions and criminal justice reform.

Fortune News seeks articles dealing with all angles of the crack cocaine issue, in order to develop an understanding of the legacy crack has left in the criminal justice system and society as a whole. Articles must be no more than 1,250 words and submitted typed, double-spaced, with the title, author's name and short biography included. (Incarcerated writers may submit handwritten manuscripts). Articles may also be submitted as Microsoft Word files, on disk or by e-mail, to [email protected]. Photographs, illustrations and artwork are welcome. Only \manuscripts and accompanying materials submitted with a self addressed, stamped envelope will be returned.

Send submissions by September 1st, 2001, to: Fortune News Submissions, c/o The Fortune Society, 53 West 23rd Street, New York, NY 10010. The Fortune Society does not compensate writers monetarily, but all submitting articles will receive a free one-year subscription. For further information, contact Shannon Herbert, Fortune News Editor at (212) 691-7554 ext. 553 or [email protected]. Visit for additional information about the Fortune Society.
