You are encouraged to send us op-ed pieces, we just ask that you please follow our easy guidelines.
1) Always, always link to sources. Always! If you make a statement that isn't common knowledge, especially statistics, you must back it up with a link. If you need help with this, you can always ask us for some research tips. But we'll probably just tell you to go to Google anyhow.
2) Please title your submission. We may decide to change it at publication, but at least we'll have something off which we can work.
3) Please let us know whether or not your piece is an original submission. We prefer them to be original, but we will reprint exceptional pieces.
In order to engage as many people as possible in creating a more just, sustainable, and compassionate society, we make our articles available under the Creative Commons license. We generally include in our contracts permission to allow reprinting of authors’ work, with the provision that any reprint acknowledge that the article first appeared in eFictionIndia.in and include the author byline. Reprints and repostings may include translations. If any fee is involved, we request payment be made directly to our authors, and if the publication plans any modifications of the article, we also request that they contact the author. Authors may also reprint their articles elsewhere with credit to eFiction India.
Our non-theme section provides ongoing coverage of issues like health, climate change, globalisation, media reform, faith, democracy, economy and labor, social and racial justice, and peace building. For past examples, please see our Blog.
We are not interested in simply bemoaning the problems that face our society. Instead, we highlight solutions in action that address the roots of our deepest ecological, social, and political problems. We emphasize engaging storytelling and factual accuracy. We are especially interested in authentic stories of positive change from the grassroots that can serve as models and inspiration for others. We also publish essays that frame or re-envision societal trends—and how these could bring about transformation and progress.
