Call for contribution

The Foundation for Universal Responsibility of His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Monday 22 June 2009, by TW

The Foundation for Universal Responsibility of His Holiness The Dalai Lama

invites contributions for a book

TIBET: VOICES IN EXILE

to be published by a major international publisher

We are looking for personal narratives and perspectives from Tibetans in exile in India and overseas. These could cover any concern, issue, reflection, memory or dreams exploring experiences, or predicaments that are personal, social or political. Authors can explore the past, the present or the future – both personal experiences in exile, of the Tibet left behind or the Tibet that might be, in the future. The canvas is wide open. We are not looking for theoretical, academic pieces, rather those that reflect felt experiences and passions. We believe this has the potential to evolve into a major document both for the Tibetan cause and for history.

We are more interested in the sensitivity and nuances of the ideas, the richness of the content, rather than quality of the language or prose. All pieces selected for publication will be edited for clarity, if necessary, but will try and retain the texture of the authors writing.

We encourage contributions across different age groups, from school children to senior citizens, private citizens to those who have served the Tibetan Government or community.

Contributions will need to be in the form of essays in ENGLISH (of approx 2000 to 2500 words). We will also welcome poetry.

All contributors whose pieces are selected for publication will be paid a one time royalty. This will be a minimum of Rs 5000/- for prose and Rs 1000 per poem.

Contributions must now reach us by August 15th 2009 by email preferably as an attachment in word format or by mail – both hard and soft copies including contact details (email, mobile & phone numbers).

New Extended Deadline of August 15th 2009!
