Hello everyone. Given the interest and fantastic submissions that have started to come in, I am extending the deadline to October 31st, 11:59pm. I hope that as word spreads there will be even more submissions. Please, if you or anyone else you know does Ancestor devotions and/or work, or even has just started beginning working with their Ancestors, encourage them to submit their writing, or art to this project. The details are listed below. If you have any questions you can post them here or send them to Sarenth@gmail.com.
The Call for Submissions
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. However, we can publish you under a pseudonym or community name if you would like.
The deadline for submissions is October 31st, 2011 at 11:59pm.
Emails for interested parties can be sent to Sarenth@gmail.com.
