T E Shaw is the name adopted by Lawrence of Arabia in 1923 as he sought anonymity working in the RAF. Lawrence was an extraordinarily talented writer and his book, “The Seven Pillars of Wisdom”, contains the following words:
“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.”
It would be presumptuous in the extreme to suggest that any passage in this magazine will be as beautiful as that. Nonetheless we have adopted the name “Shaw” as a tribute.
The Shaw Sheet is an online current affairs magazine which is published every Thursday. It has no political affiliation but seeks to bring out angles and ideas which have not been pursued elsewhere. We do not provide any facility for online comments but may, where we think it appropriate, publish readers’ letters. These should be emailed to us, giving name and address. The address will not be published but is for our own records.
If you wish to submit an article to the Shaw Sheet please email it to one of the addresses below. Should we decide to publish it we will pay a small fee provided it is over 500 words and provided it is one of your first three articles for us. Initially that fee will be £20 but we hope to increase it when, and if, we obtain income from advertising.
The Shaw Sheet is published by Shaw Sheet Publications Ltd, UK Company number 9404021, 20-22 Wenlock Road, London N1 7GU and contact details are as follows:
