Since doing Hoofprints in the Wildwood, I’ve been wanting to do a devotional for Hekate. However, there are so many Devotionals out there for her already most notably by Avalonia and B.A. So I’ve decided not to do a devotional proper, but rather a Hekatean Prayer and Ritual book, which I think there is much need for. This will be a book of prayers and rituals only, with images for meditational use. The idea being something you can take with you, read some prayers out of in either ritual or just thumb through reading prayers and looking at artwork on the fly for inspiration. The focus of this book is really prayer and ritual, so there will be no essays or poetry or the normal fare you would see in a standard devotional. I personally think something like this would be a boon to the community, not only to help new people coming to her service, but those of us where are current devotees as well.
I am currently opening up submissions! The deadline for submission is November 3oth, 2013, with the possibility of extension until the Winter Solstice if I haven’t gotten many submissions. This will be self published by me through Lulu. I cannot offer royalties or free physical copies of the book, but each person who submits will get a free electronic copy. The details are below:
Call for Submissions for the Hekatean Prayer Book
I am currently accepting all submissions for the Hekatean prayer book. I am looking for original Prayers, rituals, and devotional artwork.
Prayers, Chants, and Invocations: Prayers may be of any length and style, so long as it is original, and directed to the goddess Hekate. Poetry will not be accepted! I realize this is a fine line as prayers can be poetic, but poetry for literary purposes is not in the scope of this book. The submission must be clearly a prayer directed to Hekate (which can be as poetic as you like) that is designed to be spoken aloud. Chants will also be accepted, as well as mantras. Devotional songs and music are acceptable.
Rituals: I am also looking for rituals of a devotional manner. Not spells, but devotional rituals of all sorts, energy work, etc. Be creative! These can be as long or short as you want. If you have a personal devotional ritual that you used, or even meditation, that would be perfect for this work.
Artwork: I’d like to artwork of Hekate throughout the book to meditate on. These can be pictures, shrines, paintings, photo manips, etc. Also accepted will be abstract Hekatean concepts such as keys, snakes, dogs, skulls, etc. Also, we’ll need a cover image!
Please send all submissions to Skyllaros@gmail.com
Again the deadline is November 3oth, 2013. I will be the final judge on all submissions. You must also be willing to sign an agreement to have your work included, which will be sent to you by email.
Any reblogs, retweets, and signal boosts would be appreciated. Lets make this thing a reality.
