AFPI Karnataka Newsletter

Instructions for Authors

There is rich experience in the practice of each one of us. Probably because of reluctance and a culture of humility, we are not encouraged to think about this experience and write about it. We tend to keep our original voice unheard. This newsletter is for every practitioner to make their voice heard, their experience counted.

To submit an article here, the only requirement is that it is a genuine article that advances our mission. The language, the format, the structure, none of that should bother you. Our editorial team will help you restyle, restructure, and rethink your article, if required, before publication. What matters to us is that you write with conviction.

We allow the author(s) to retain their copyright to the articles they publish here and we strongly encourage that the authors in turn release their article under a Creative Commons license to allow wide resharing. Read our copyright policy.

You can send your submissions by email to or any member of the editorial team and one of us will get back to you.
