One month left for Summer Solstice 2013 Hermetic Library Journal submissions

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.

Hermetic Library Journal submissions to the Agora market for Summer Solstice 2013

There’s only two months 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 consider submitting your written and visual work. If you have any questions, comments or wish to contribute to this project; contact the librarian.

The commons and marketplace of ancient Hellenic culture. For those interested in reaching the readership of the journal and those wishing to support the library, I will be offering full, half and quarter page spaces for people to provide ads of relevant interest that will reach the readership. I will also be providing some of this space gratis to Hermetic Library fellows, members of the Hermetic Hosting family, and some select others as a way of saying thank you for their ongoing participation and support so they can let people know about their projects.

When placed in print these will be 1/4 page, 1/2 page or full page sizes; and have vertical, horizontal, or square orientations. When presented online, or in other digital formats, be aware that every reasonable effort will be made to maintain the fidelity of the size and format relative to content within the medium, but some variation will be inevitable. Please provide advertisements in high quality, lossless digital files suitable for print such as 600 DPI TIFF or vector format. Also, please provide a destination URL for use when possible in the format of presentation. Placement within each journal will be determined primarily by order of submission, mediated only where necessary to avoid detrimental juxtapositions and so forth.
