Call for the 4th Batch of Contributing Authors: The Blue Letters Blog; Apply by 18th August

ABOUT THE BLUE LETTERS
We are a digital knowledge platform. Throughout human history, one of the primary reasons for socio-economic disparity has been lack of accessibility, especially to knowledge. The law, complex social structures, and the intricate concepts of various social sciences often create confusion due to their complex terminology and the sheer volume of data.  This confusion, this gap between people and information is the place where most of society’s issues take root – be it corruption, class disparity, or other forms of discrimination.  This initiative is a small attempt from our side to bridge that gap. Our hope and objective is for a more inclusive and accessible future.

WHO CAN APPLY
The Blue Letters is accepting the third batch of candidates from all educational backgrounds, provided that they are interested in, and capable of, writing socio-legal articles. The article would be interdisciplinary in nature, analysing aspects of various social sciences, law, or the interface of more than one of these subjects. We would request prospective candidates to visit our website ( https://theblueletters.com/) once to get a better idea of our work.


Interested candidates are requested to send in their CV, a brief SOP of not more than 200 words, specifying the particular areas they would be interested in writing, and a sample of 1000-1200 words, which can either be published or unpublished (the candidates are requested to specify the same in either situation) at submissions.tbl@gmail.com.


The selected candidates would be expected to submit a minimum of 4 articles (1000-1200 words each) per month. Only the articles approved by our Editorial Board will be considered as having been submitted by the contributing authors. Any personal commitments shall be duly considered but the team must be informed in advance.
