Hear ye, hear ye!
Members of the Fellowship of Isis (FOI), a worldwide inter-religious network (some 26,000 members strong!) dedicated to “honoring the religion of all the Goddesses and pantheons throughout the planet,” are cordially invited to send me their content submissions for the Spring 2015 issue of Isis-Seshat, a quarterly journal for FOI members. Submissions of articles related to spiritual development; essays on one’s personal spiritual practices; news reports from Lyceums and Iseums, including accounts of Lyceums’ or Iseums’ ritual observances for Spring Equinox; meditations; poetry; short stories; seasonally appropriate ritual food recipes; metaphysical book reviews; reflections on the Goddesses and Gods of Spring (of any pantheon, not just Kemetic Deities), are all welcome! Essays/articles, submitted as Word docs, can be as long as 2,000 words. If you’re including any proprietary photos, please keep them under 8 MB in file size and saved in JPEG format.
Please submit your files to me at email@example.com. The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 27. The Spring issue will be distributed to subscribers on Earth Day, April 22.
Curious about the FOI? For starters, Isis Myrionymos, Lady of 10,000 Names, serves as the organization’s Patroness. And it saddens me to have to do this, but in these times of global political volatility I must assert that we have nothing to do with the abhorrent Middle Eastern terrorist organization whose acronym the corporate-controlled U.S. media incorrectly, and repeatedly, refers to as “ISIS.” Click here for our official statement/press release to the media on that issue.
While many FOI members are Pagan, many hail from Buddhism, Hinduism, Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy/Coptic Christianity, Reformed Judaism, Shintoism and other indigenous peoples’/First Nations’ religions. Interfaith religious dialogue has been a major FOI preoccupation since the late co-founder Rt. Rev. Lady Olivia Robertson represented goddess-worshiping religions under the auspices of the FOI at the 1993 Parliament of the World’s Religions in Chicago. Anyone who believes in the concept of the Divine Feminine, however interpreted, is probably already in alignment with the FOI’s Manifesto.
So, fellow servants of the Muses, if you’ve got the write stuff (yes, I’m punny sometimes), whip out your writing implements of choice (Hail, Tehuti!) and send me your contributions!
Blessings in the name of Isis-Seshat, Goddess of Writing! May She always render you True of Voice!
