There’s only one month until the March 21st, 2013 deadline to participate in the inaugural issue of the Hermetic Library Journal from the Benefit Anthology Project! Release is planned for June 21st, 2013. Consider letting others whom you think may be interested know about this as well, but more importantly consider submitting your written and visual work and the various sections for specific submissions. If you have any questions, comments or wish to contribute to this project; contact the librarian.
The Hermetic Library Journal is intended as a place for both practice and theory, not only informed by the other but with the intention of crossing thresholds between scholar and practitioner. The Journal offers a venue for art and culture that both informs and is informed by esotericism, which will bring the artist into the mix. The Journal is a community of intentional work from theoretic, practical and cultural perspectives that explores and relates to written and visual work about or inspired by esotericism and magick in the form of articles, essays, personal narratives, poetry, fiction, plays, artwork, sequential art, biographies, and more.
There are several sections to which you may be interested in submitting work:
· For general written and visual submissions, I will be accepting a wide and diverse range of materials, basically looking for work that is informed by or engages the living Western Esoteric Tradition, Hermeticism, Aleister Crowley’s Thelema and other subject matter at the library. You may also be interested in reading about the completely optional peer-review process, a way to get feedback on general submissions.
· Symposium, or forum, section is an opportunity for readers to write on a topic pre-selected for each issue, which for this issue is Intolerance and Tolerance.
· Kottabos, or letters, section for letters to the editor.
· Agora, or market, section is a place to provide goods and services of relevant interest that will reach the readership.
· Kerukeion, or announcements, section is a place for brief gratis community notices.
For general information, please read the call for submissions and the terms & conditions for submissions. If you have any comments, questions or concerns; or want to submit your work for an anthology, just contact the librarian.
