Deadline: December 26th, 2022 Payment: Contributors copy and $5 per page Theme: Poetry involving the fifth element & highest point of the pentacle: Spirit. #Spirit embodies the aether / the quintessence. White Stag Publishing is closing out the #ELEMENTSERIES with the fifth element & highest point of the pentacle: Spirit. #Spirit embodies the aether / the quintessence. It is the ethereal space & what dwells within it; divine beings, spirits & the Fae, even the supra natural. Humans attempt to access the Spirit through various mediums & divinatory practices: through clairvoyance & psychic awareness, lucid dreaming & astral projection, tarot & scrying (to name a few). Some also believe it can be accessed through prayer or only after death, when our souls leave our body to join the great expanse. It is engrained in all cultures, in various ways throughout the world; through magic & science, myth & fable. Spirit moves the pious, inspires artists & dreamers, brings magic to our terrestrial realm. For this anthology, we are looking for poetry that explores the ethereal realm through various mediums whether religious / spiritual, through clairvoyance / meditation, science, & the imagination. We want theology, mysticism & magick, alchemy, explore the ancient mysteries. We want work that goes beyond our sphere & into the void, translating the unknown. Send us your séances, your rituals, your communions with the gods, show us the creatures that lurk in the night (the ones we don’t already know about), tell us of your travels through space & time. We want poetry that is evocative of the otherworldly. Be bold & dare to go beyond. A GUIDE TO PROFFERING: Please send no more than 8 pages of poetry in a word doc or pdf to [email protected] with SPIRIT in the subject line. We highly recommend you...
