I’m compiling a project for Shambhala Publications called “35<35." It is meant to provide an opportunity for younger practitioners of all Buddhist sanghas to express themselves, find each other, and strengthen a sense of sangha.
I am looking for personal essays from practitioners under 35 years old on what it is like to try to live the dharma–at home, school, work, and in relationships of all kinds; as artists, students, friends, lovers, and seekers.
As editor of the project, I will read each submission. All appropriate works will be posted to our website, https://www.35u35.com/ and 35 essays will be selected for publication in a digital and/or print book.
To be considered as a finalist, submissions should be in English. I’m hoping we can post submissions in other languages to our website, but I’ll have to find an editor who speaks that language first!
The deadline for submissions is November 1, 2011.
More information can be found on the site, especially in the “About” section: https://www.35u35.com/about/
