Call for Submissions -Ancestor Devotional

I am putting out the call again; I have had only one responder so far, and I really am hoping to have entries by the June 2nd deadline.

Asphodel Press

Working Title: Calls to Our Ancestors

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 Ancestor worship with Gods, spirits and/or human Dead.

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 words minimum for essays. Long essays welcome and encouraged. Please submit with no specialized fonts, in .doc, .docx, or .rtf file format. Any devotional pieces, artwork, and other visual submissions need to be no less than 300 dpi, 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.

All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to benefit a charity that benefits the elderly and/or Ancestors in some way, such as Cultural Survival. I am soliciting suggestions for charities to donate the proceeds to.

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, Eastern Summer Time (GMT-4)

Interested parties may email Sarenth@gmail.com.

    I have myself some notes on the subject, but I need time to ponder, to organise and write. All the more so since it is not my mother tongue. I don’t know if I’ll be able to contribute in time, but I wish to.

      *nods* If I find that I don’t have many contributions by the deadline I may end up pushing it back again.

    I hope you don’t mind that I sent this info. to the Seers and Seekers Yahoo group:

      Not at all! I want this to go as far and wide as I can to get as many submissions as I can.
