Blog Submissions

Anarcho-Buddhist Collective (ABC) welcomes reader submissions–articles, essays, poems, works of satire, short stories, etc. exploring the way of Buddha Dharma in the shadow of Empire. In particular, we are looking for pieces that seek to undermine systems of oppression and/or creatively explore possibilities for liberation from an anarchist perspective. We also love good radical theology.

Submit your article in an unencumbered format such as .odt, .txt, or .rtf via email to threethirty [at] riseup [dot] net with “Anarcho-Buddhist Collective” in the subject line.

In addition to your submission, please include a one-paragraph bio. We also prefer that writers include a profile picture or some type of avatar along with their submission.

Please read the following guidelines before submitting your work:

* Word length is flexible, but please don’t send us articles that would take more than 5-10 minutes to read (we prefer pieces that are 300-1000 words). Serial articles are acceptable, but we generally prefer that you submit the series in its entirety within the same day. We reserve the right to edit for length and clarity.

* Writing style should be conversational, rather than academic. In other words, we’d prefer that you avoid using lingo that only folks with advanced degrees can understand.

* We prefer gender-inclusive, gender-neutral, or gender-balanced language.

* ABC is interested in publishing articles on radical ideas, spirituality, cultural critique, politics, satire, book reviews, CD reviews, and works of fiction that have spiritual/economic/political themes. ABC wants thought provoking content that will help readers explore the social, political, and spiritual implications of following the Eight Fold Path.

* If a submission is rejected, please do not get discouraged about sending future work. There are a number of reasons we may decide to pass on an article–quality isn’t our only concern. One thing we will absolutely not publish, however, is any article that advocates the killing of human or non-human animals, unless it is a discussion about food. Time constraints do not allow us to respond to you with reasons why a particular piece may have been rejected. Previous success in getting a submission posted does not guarantee publication of future work.

* Please do proofread your work before sending it in: check your grammar, spelling, look for typos, etc. The more editing we have to do, the longer it takes for us to post your work … if we decide to at all. We don’t mind fixing problems after a piece has been posted, but it can be a pain.
We will try to fact check articles as time permits, but time is limited, so please fact check your work.

* It is understood that articles published on ABC do not necessarily reflect the views of its editors or all contributing writers. Conversely, statements and positions by the editor do not necessarily reflect the views of ABC’s contributing writers. Anarcho-Buddhist Collective seeks to engage in conversation with different voices and perspectives within the radical/anarchist Sangha and to that end we accept articles from kindred spirits that elicit conversation and that challenge us as readers and organizers. That said, the viewpoints shared in these articles are not necessarily representative of any “official Anarcho-Buddhist Collective” position.

* Writers retain full copyright control of their work. We will take down articles upon the author’s request.
