Ruach is a newsletter devoted to the exploration of the archetypal dominants of Sophia as they appear in psyche and in culture.
Each issue of Ruach is organized around a theme. The theme for the upcoming April 2020 issue is: The Alchemy of Hope.
Deadline for submissions for the April issue is: March 15th, 2020
TYPES OF SUBMISSIONS
ARTICLES, ESSAYS & BLOG POSTS
Ruach welcomes original articles, essays and blog posts. We look for original, creative thought that situates itself in relation to contemporary Jungian psychology/archetypal theory, philosophy, socio-political issues and the arts. We prefer well-researched articles that offer an original perspective and incorporate an inter-disciplinary approach to the topic. Specifically, we are looking for perspectives that see through a Sophia consciousness and not necessarily a traditional, patriarchal perspective. For example, a fresh perspective on feminine figures in myth and fairytale that does not transmogrify the feminine who exercises self-agency and power. All writings must be directly related to the theme of an issue.
We consider original fiction if directly related to the theme of an issue.
Poetry must be submitted as email attachments in .doc (MS word)
Submissions in other formats will not be considered.
Submissions are limited to a maximum of three (3) 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.
Entries that do not follow submissions guidelines cannot be considered.
All art work/photography submitted must be original art.
Submissions must be sent as jpeg or png files only
Please include title of art and artist’s name.
Featured Articles, Essays and Posts run 500-2000 words
2. ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS ONLY
Ruach will only accept material submitted via email. Your biographical information should be included in the same document as the article. Include your last name in the file name (ie., “smith.doc”), not our name.
The article should be composed in Microsoft Word, double-spaced, use Garamond 12 pt font, use footnotes rather than endnotes, and only justify the left margin of the text. The Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition) is our authority in matters of style.
3. BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION
On a separate page, include a brief (2-3 sentence) biographical description of yourself. Fit the description to the subject matter of the article, i.e. explain your qualifications or experience with the topic(s) you’re writing about.
Bio’s sent as separate documents are very easily lost or confused with those from other articles; please include your biographical information in the main body of your submission.
Submission of material for consideration implies agreement to allow Ruach the right to use an article in all substantially complete versions (including non-print versions) of a single issue of our on-line magazine. We also request the right to use the piece in the promotion of Ruach, and to authorize single-copy reproductions for academic purposes. All other rights are retained by the author.
Ruach is a volunteer publication that is offered to the growing on-line, international community of The Sophia Center. Ruach does not offer payment for accepted submissions.
