CFS: Persephone Devotional

February 9, 2011

Queen of the Sacred Way: A Devotional Anthology in Honor of Persephone is now open for submissions!

We are interested in a wide variety of pieces, including (but not limited to) scholarly articles, short fiction, poetry, original translations of ancient texts, hymns, rituals and artwork.

Submitters are strongly encouraged to explore the many facets of this complex Goddess in their work, such as Persephone as daughter, Spring Maiden, Queen of Underworld, wife of Hades, lover of Adonis, rival of Aphrodite, Initiator of the Mysteries, Mother of Dionysus, Aion and the Eyrines, etc. Pieces that focus on lesser-known myths and aspects of Persephone are of particular interest.

All works must be original, not public domain. No plagiarism. Previously published submissions are acceptable, provided the author retains all rights to the work. Authors retain all rights to the submission. Upon acceptance, the author will be sent a permission to publish form along with a request for a short biography to include in the anthology.

The editor reserves the right to make any minor changes in the case of grammar, spelling and formatting concerns. The editor also reserves the right to request modification of submissions and to reject submissions as necessary.

No monetary compensation will be provided. Proceeds from all sales will be divided between charitable donations in the name of the Goddess, and production costs for future publications from Bibliotheca Alexandrina. All contributors will receive a coupon code which will allow them to purchase three copies of the anthology at cost.

Acceptable length is anywhere from 100-10,000 words (with the exception of poetry), and the submissions period will run from February 7 2011- August 31st 2011, with the projected release date in September of the same year. Please send your submission either in the body of the email or as a .doc/.docx attachment with “Persephone Devotional” in the subject line to
