We can only consider submissions relating to Buddhism. Please send work that reflects your knowledge and interests rather than trying to anticipate Tricycle’s. It might be helpful to browse our website to get a sense of our current content.
For your submission to be considered, we ask that you first send us a one-page query outlining your idea, any relevant information about your Buddhist and writing background, your familiarity with the subject of your proposal, and so on. If you have clips or writing samples, please send these along with your proposal.
Due to the high volume of submissions, we are not currently accepting unsolicited poetry. We prefer articles between 500–2,000 words. We rarely publish articles longer than 4,000 words.
We try to respond to all article submissions within one month. However, due to the large number that we receive each month, please don’t let a longer wait surprise you.
To be considered for a particular issue, the deadlines are as follows:
Spring (February release) – September 15Summer (May release) – December 15Fall (August release) – April 15Winter (November release) – July 15
If you have questions about completing the form, contact us at email@example.com. We accept submissions electronically only; we do not accept physical manuscripts or submissions via email.
Thank you for your interest in Tricycle: The Buddhist Review. We look forward to seeing your work.
