An update.  We have hoped for those persons who confirmed they were sending in articles to have them in by the end of June, but to date we have only received one submission, as we are wanting this book too have many areas of articles for the greater Pagan community to enjoy.  We will be putting off publishing again until 2013 for Vol III.  This will give those contributors time to get their articles together and to confirm that we will offer a Vol III we will be looking at 2013 March for submissions in so we can publish in time for Beltaine the Great Rite.

Black Walnut Anthology Submission Guidelines

Deadline: 2013 March 23 — Submissions are Closed for Vol III, check back for Vol IV Submission Deadline.

I am hoping this give artists and contributing authors time to put some amazing work together for the Annual Black Walnut.

Black Walnut Anthology

What we are looking for:

Articles on history, philosophy, theurgy, green magic, philosophers and how they contributed to the Western world creation, magic {divination, types of magic astrological, lunar, and more}, the dead and where they go and how they we honour them at festivals and feasts in which honour the Gods, cultures, specific tradition/s paths and more.

Art work to feature to be submitted by the original artist.

Articles are between 5-35+ pages in length.

Practical Essays to include but not limited to, astrology, magic, philosophy, theurgy, studies in the areas of cultures in which you are a practicing Crafter, prose and poetry, personal studies, and more.  All articles must include a bibliography unless otherwise noted as your own work, as well as recommendations for further studies if so inclined.

As we entrée the dark season or as some call it the Black Months we are focusing on those articles that teach us of the inner workings those things hidden, the dead and the festivals that surround honouring them, the deities in which are worked with more during this time and types of magic in which can be worked during this cycle.  The dark time of the cycles is a time in which can teach us about the deepest secrets ourselves and Knowing Thyself.

Ideally, should be between 5-35 + pages. Thus far, we have an overview of the year with its festivals and astrological correspondences, and what that means for practical magic.
