Unearthed is an online literary journal published by SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Founded in 2015, and in collegiate follow up to the print journal Ecologue, Unearthed publishes work that responds to the immediacy of place, and that occupies the changes inherent in speaking to, with, and for the environment.

To unearth is to get at, get out, dig up; it is to uncover and bring to notice; and it is about bringing light to something new through the pathways of searching. Our contributors can interpret these elements of unearthing in many ways, and our aim as a journal is to be as inclusive as possible in celebrating the ranges of divergence and convergence in unearthing.

We seek to publish all forms of “making” (poetry, creative and critical nonfiction, fiction, photography, video, and artwork) with a special emphasis on art that addresses the particularities and peculiarities of place. Each issue will feature an interview with an artist working creatively in and with the values shared by the SUNY-ESF community. Each issue will also feature a balance of work produced by students, faculty, and any artists wishing to submit and become a part of Unearthed. Our latest issues were published in March and May, and will be followed by a fall issue. Please see our submissions page for guidelines. We read work through Submittable, and the link to submitting is here.

Unearthed is currently managed by Visiting Assistant Professor Tyler Flynn Dorholt. Each semester a student editorial board helps read for the journal, and the editorial team for latest issue includes Bethany Elliot, Samantha Kolb, Aidan Murphy, Arie Palileo, and Crystal Smith.
