    Tikkun Magazine

    We print articles on social theory, religion/spirituality, social change, contemporary American and global politics and economics, ecology, culture, psychology, and Israel/Palestine. What we look for in such pieces are perspectives that interrogate the politics of their subject matter in ways which both advance the pursuit of tikkun olam - social justice and the repair of the world - and break down issues of contemporary concern in completely new and thoughtful ways. We support a progressive spirituality, but we welcome ideas that challenge established orthodoxies in all spheres of thought and all conceptions of politics, including challenging progressive politics. We also challenge "common sense" and every form of "being realistic" and welcome the most utopian ideas and the uncovering and challenging aspects of thought, culture, or social organization that have convinced people that our world cannot be reconstructed on the basis of love, generosity,non-violence, social justice, caring for Nature, and awe and wonder at the grandeur of the universe. We're not likely to print articles about your travel to some important part of the world, your experience of having your child or your family enter into a particular religious experience, or your own personal path to spiritual enlightenment or religious practice. Nor are we a magazine of facts that "covers what is happening" in some particular area of the world or of politics. What we seek are creative new perspectives on the facts that help us deepen our understanding or contribute to strategies of healing and transformation (which is what the word "tikkun" means). We haven't printed fiction in many years, mostly because of the difficulty of finding enough pages in the magazine to print them, though if there is a budding Phillip Roth or Margaret Atwood out there who wants to send us their very very most extraordinary fiction that happens to connect to our themes as a magazine, we'd be happy to read them. Every feature submitted to Tikkun must be between 800 and 2400 words in length. We do take longer articles occasionally if they are so tightly argued there is no fluff and no way to make their insightful points more briefly. We do not take articles that have appeared in print elsewhere in the U.S. or on the web (with the exception of some poetry, below).
