Write for dharma Drops Magazine
Looking to share your ideas? Look no further.
Are you a seasoned writer with a background in yoga? Or are you a non-yogi with something interesting to share? If you have something relevant, interesting, exciting, groundbreaking, or funny to offer to a broad audience of yogis and non-yogis, then we want to hear from you!
We are committed to creating a digital environment that builds community and celebrates the individuality of yogis and non-yogis alike. As Dharma Drops Magazine develops, we are in need of guest writers with unique voices to share their ideas with the world. In other words, we want this to be a platform for yogis and non-yogis alike who are interested a variety of topics either specifically related to yoga—or kinda sorta related to yoga. Heck, maybe not even related to yoga at all.
Swipe right or left? Are we a good match?
Before reading any further or sending your pitch, please keep a few things in mind:
At Rebecca Warfield Yoga and Dharma Drops, we take yoga seriously, but not ourselves. In other words, we live through the practice of yoga. However, we are committed to the fullness of the human experience. With that in mind, we believe that not everything has to be serious all of the time. And not everything has to be about yoga all of the time.
If you haven’t done so already, take some time to read through the current articles to get a sense of the tone here at Rebecca Warfield Yoga.
It will be worth your time to listen to the episodes of Dharma Drops (RWY’s podcast) to familiarize yourself with the “Yoga, Life, Whatever” mojo around these parts.
What we are looking for?
We are currently seeking articles that fit into various, broad categories. These categories are not designed to make you feel limited. Instead, we are looking for interesting, diverse, and entertaining perspectives within these topics, both about and not about yoga:
The True Life of a Yogi: Share your story. If you have had an interesting introduction to yoga, humorous experiences, learning lessons, or (we hope not) horror stories; we want to hear about it.
Yoga Lifestyles: This (very) broad category encompasses diet, exercise, fashion, and beyond. In what ways do you live your life as a yogi? Please keep in mind, we value diversity in lifestyles. This is not a platform to argue for or against one of lifestyle over another. Instead, this is a space to celebrate the different ways in which we can lives as yogis.
Yoga, Life, Whatever. Also known as “evergreen stories,” these are articles that are relevant today—and beyond. In other words, what do you have to say that people are always interested in? Food, recipes, work, relationships, travel, crafting, music, etc.
On Trend Topics: Unlike evergreen articles, these are pieces that are specifically relevant to current events, trending topics, recent television shows, etc. In short, these articles can be just about anything that is currently happening.
Creative Works: Showcase your talents. If you write poetry, create visual art, or have other interesting, creative endeavors; send ‘em our way!
