Arun, author of the blog Angry Asian Buddhist, sent out this announcement about what looks to be a great new journal, coming out in June 2010. The cover sure is gorgeous! Here’s the info:
Some friends and I are starting up a new Buddhist journal called Prapañca (www.prapancajournal.com), a publication aimed at reflecting the diversity and creative energy of the Buddhist community. We’re particularly interested in promoting the work of literary and visual artists. Diversity is important to us, and we want to include and spotlight the work of People of Color and/or female artists—groups often underrepresented in American Buddhist publications.
Submissions don’t need to be by Buddhists or based on explicitly Buddhist material—our issues follow general themes, for example our first issue will be on “imperfection.” Future issues touch on the Four Protections and anatta (“selflessness”). We don’t hold rigid submissions expectations—please feel free to be creative with these topics!
Please let me know if you, your friends & family and other people in your network are interested in having your work displayed in Prapañca. You can visit our submissions page for more information: http://www.prapancajournal.com/submissions.php
