Shambhala Publications seeks essays for a new project 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 regardless of dharmic affiliation.
We are 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.
You can be a brand new practitioner or a veteran. Please feel free to bring your faith and doubt, clarity and confusion, hope and fear. Above all, we want this book to be real.
