PN – Parabola Magazine Seeking Submissions with the Theme: “Comfort & Joy”

September 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Parabola welcomes original essays. We look for lively, penetrating material unencumbered by jargon or academic argument. We prefer well-researched, objective, and unsentimental pieces that are grounded in one or more religious or cultural tradition; articles that focus on dreams, visions, or other very personal experiences are unlikely to be accepted.

Send your submission to the email or physical address listed below, along with a brief autobiography (2-3 sentences). Emails should include the article attached as a .doc, .txt, or .rtf file.


Poetry must be submitted as email attachments in the following file formats:

.doc (MS word),
.txt (standard text file) or
.rtf (formatted text file).

Submissions in other formats will not be considered.

Submissions are limited to a maximum of five (5) poems per author.
The file must be transmitted under the author’s last name, with all poems in a single file, separated by page breaks. Each page must have the author’s name on it.

Submissions should be sent by email to

Submission Guidelines

  • Articles: 1000-3000 words
  • Forum contributions: no longer than 500 words
Biographical Information

Please include a brief (2-3 sentence) biography with your subscription. Fit the description to the subject matter of the article, e.g., for an article on Tibetan Buddhism, “Smith spent three years travelling in Tibet.” Or, a publication credit: “Smith is the author of Pilgrimage in Tibet (W. W. Norton, 1987).” Always include your publisher.


Parabola purchases the right to use an article in all substantially complete versions (including non-print versions) of a single issue of our journal. We also request the right to use the piece in the promotion of Parabola, and to authorize single-copy reproductions for academic purposes. All other rights are retained by the author.
