People of Shambhala welcomes submissions from writers and journalists. When submitting an article for review please follow the guidelines below.
Culture articles usually run between 1,000 and 2,500 words, although they can be longer. Subjects for this section include current and historical culture, identity, political analysis especially in relation to identity and religion, design and ecology. Culture articles should take a fresh look at the chosen subject, providing readers with a new perspective.
Life items normally run between 350 and 750 words. Articles for this section tend to concentrate on lifestyle and “feel good” issues. Subjects range from meditation, yoga and health to advertising and cosmetics.
Fashion News aims to bring up-to-date news on fashion brands and events. Articles are generally short, but should offer insight that is not found elsewhere. Analysis of the cultural, spiritual and political implications of fashion trends are confined to the Culture section.
World News articles are normally at least 500 words long, and can run up to 1,500 words. This section endeavors to provide readers with in depth analysis of current events. However, World News aims to be more than a forum for analysis, by examining both external events and internal, social concerns. Articles generally concern Asian or, to a lesser extent, the Middle East, and may focus on areas of politics, international conflicts, spirituality, religious, and so on. Writers should have some expertise in the area of their subject.
