You can submit essays for publication in this online journal. If your essay is accepted for publication, there are no obligations on the part of the editor or the essayist.

There are no restrictions regarding the structure, content or length of the essays sent, but there are following recommendations:

1. Essays should be between 500 and 1000 words long.

2. They should be related (at least indirectly) to culture.

3. It is best when they use a specific event, a scene from a film or an anniversary, for example, to subsequently address a more general, universal theme.

There are no separate issues in this journal; the essays will be published when subjectively deemed worthy of publication by the editor.
