Call for submissions – Ancestor veneration anthology

Asphodel Press

Working Title: Calls to Our Ancestors

Description: An anthology of prayers, poems, devotional pieces, essays, personal experience, and/or artwork in honor of our Ancestors. This anthology draws from a variety of sources and authors, and may include Ancestors worship in the form of spirits and/or Gods as well, for those whose beliefs encompass this.

What is not desired: fanfic, ego-stroking, self-aggrandizement. It’s one thing if you believe you’re sired by a God/dess, it’s another to treat other humans as lower than yourself.

Word Length: 800-1500 words minimum for essays. No specialized fonts, please. All formats for written pieces should be in a .doc, .docx, or .rtf file format. Any devotional pieces, artwork, etc. in visual format needs to be submitted in no less than 300 dpi format, preferably .tiff or .png for lossless quality.

Contributors will not be paid for this contribution. This is a one-time publishing opportunity, so you retain all rights to your piece and can use it as you wish after publication.

Any contributors need to give their legal names and addresses in the email for a release form for their work.

The deadline for submissions is June 2nd, 2011 at 11:59pm.

Emails for interested parties can be sent to Sarenth AT

  2. Hmm…That might be interesting. Perhaps a piece on the Sancti of the Ekklesía Antínoou, which is still one of our most controversial practices, no matter how many times I’ve explained it is nothing like Christian sainthood…?!?

  3. P. Sufenas, I’d love to see something like that! If I can get my act together in May, I kinda have an idea for an essay to submit.
