Tikkun is now only online. We address a wide range of issues (see our website  www.tikkun.org). We do not have a word limit except what we think our readers will read (depending on how much they are drawn in by your writing style and/or new and engaging ideas). We are a magazine of ideas, not a news journal. We do not print articles that have been printed elsewhere. If you have accompanying art or photos, you must assure us that you have legal rights to give Tikkun permission to use them or the URL to where they appear in websites that are designed to give such permission. With a tiny staff, it takes us time to review what you have sent, so be patient.

Our website shows the range of issues we address. We do accept poetry and fiction, but we are seeking high quality in both of those categories, as we do in regard to non-fiction articles. We do not pay for articles or poetry or fiction, and while authors retain the rights to anything of theirs that we print, we retain the right to reprint them on our website or in any collection of articles,  poetry or fiction that we have published, and to send them out to the 40,000 people who receive our emails.

If your contribution addresses something that is timely, e.g. a social, political, or economic development that would likely be irrelevant 6 months from now, please send a copy to alden@tikkun.org instead of uploading it here.  If you don't hear back from Alden within two weeks, assume that it will not be used, and feel free to send it elsewhere. We do not have enough staff to give feedback or explanations for why we are not using any given submission. If you'd like to volunteer time at Tikkun, so that we might have more editorial capacities, apply by sending a self-revealing note to rabbilerner.tikkun.@gmail.com describing your relevant skills and what about Tikkun excites you and what don't you like about our editorial stances. Tell us also how many hours a week you can volunteer (online).

Please read the comprehensive submissions guidelines on our website before submitting poetry for consideration by poetry editor Frances Payne Adler.

TIKKUN POETRY GUIDELINES:

Tikkun is looking for poems that contribute to healing and repairing the world; social action poems that witness, break silence, reach for justice in all of its many forms; poems that imagine a transformed world.

Submit up to three original unpublished poems, a brief two-sentence bio, and contact info. We look forward to reading your work.

$3.00
$3.00

Works of fiction must be under 3,000 words to be published in the print magazine. While we have no set lengths for web pieces, works over 5000 words will have to be especially impressive to warrant publication. Novel excerpts are fine provided that they can stand alone.

Please read our comprehensive fiction guidelines on our web site before submitting content for our consideration. Click here to read those guidelines (link will open in separate window).

Tikkun is only online now. Please read here for a description of what constitutes a “tikkunish” article and here for what constitutes a “tikkunish” book review. Our website shows the range of issues we address and this includes poetry and fiction. We do not have a word limit. We are more interested in what will capture and sustain readers’ interest. We are a magazine of ideas, not a news journal. We do not print articles that have been printed elsewhere. If you have accompanying art or photos that you want to be included with your article, you must assure us that you have legal rights to give Tikkun permission to use them or the URL (and link) to where they appear in websites that are designed to give such permission. With a tiny staff, it takes us time to review what you have sent, so be patient. 

We do not pay for articles. Authors retain the rights to their pieces, and Tikkun retains the right to reprint them on our website (or in print) or in any collection of articles, poetry, or fiction that we publish, and to send them to the 40,000 plus people who receive our emails. To submit your article, please click here. If your article is timely (e.g. a social, political, or economic development that would likely be irrelevant 6 months from now), please indicate so in the form.
