Call for Papers

Element, the Journal of the Society for Mormon Philosophy and Theology has issued a ca for student submissions. This is your chance to appear between the same covers as bloggernacle luminaries Jim Faulconer, John Hamer, Nate Oman, Rosalynde Welch, and even one of Zelophehad’s Daughters (we’re not telling which one, and you’d better not either!), and other hotshot Mo. Intellectuals (MoTels?). The SMPT is doing lots of interesting things you should know about, even if you’re not a student clever enough to have something to submit.
