Submission Guidelines

We accept article submissions on a rolling basis. While we can only consider submissions relating to Buddhism, however obliquely, we believe that there is a Buddhist approach to anything and everything. Also, 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. We look forward to seeing your work.

Article Submissions

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 to receive short (fewer than 4,000 words), typed manuscripts. Please include a word count, as well as your name, address, and the date, in your query letter.

We accept submissions electronically only; we do not accept physical manuscripts. Send submissions to

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.

Thank you for your interest in Tricycle: The Buddhist Review.
