Avalonia UK has posted a call for papers (and artwork & photography) to The Bosom of Isis, an “anthology exploring the history, myths, worship and resurgence of the goddess Isis” with a deadline for submissions on September 19th, 2014.
“The Bosom of Isis is an anthology exploring the history, myths, worship and resurgence of the goddess Isis. Isis (Aset, Iset) is arguably one of the most important ancient goddesses, honoured by peasants, artisans, pharoahs and aristocrats. Evidence for her worship can be found from the earliest dynasties of Egypt, through her proliferation in Europe during the Greco-Roman period and more recently as part of the resurgence of the Divine Feminine through the Western Mystery Tradition into modern Paganism and Goddess spirituality. Isis was the mother of Horus, the sister-wife of Osiris, the twin sister of Nephthys and daughter of Nuit and Geb. She is a protectress of children, goddess of magic and closely associated with rulership, with the meaning of her name being ‘throne’.”
