Living in Magick
Call for Submissions: Living in Magick- Stories of everyday Magick, Paganism and Witchcraft
Liminal Raven Ministries is accepting submissions for an anthology tentatively entitled Living in Magick- Stories of Everyday Magick, Paganism and Witchcraft.
Personal essays and stories (up to 2,500 words) as well as poetry, rituals and prayers are welcome.
We are looking for stories about everyday lives as witches and pagans and practitioners of magick. Stories and essays about the things that make us who and what we are. Stories of turning a mundane life into a magickal one. Stories on how our practice, beliefs, and rituals empower us and keep us strong.
We are looking for every day rituals, experiences with magick, personal stories of connecting with spirits, ancestors and deities. Tentative topics will include Magical Mornings, Nature, Parenting, Lovemaking, Prayers, Practice, Devotion, Death, The seasons, festivals, retreats, coven and solitary practitioner experiences and anything relating to life as a witch and pagan.
We are also accepting original art and photography that reflects your interpretation of what it means to be Living In Magick. Art should be sent in high resolution as a jpeg and will be printed in black and white. DO NOT SUBMIT WORK THAT IS NOT YOUR OWN.
Contributing authors and artists will retain ownership of their work. All contributors will receive a complementary copy of the finished book. During the pre-order stage of publication, they will be able to order as many copies as they want at cost to give as gifts or sell as they wish.

Scheduled publication: Tentatively late Spring 2023
Please send your finished piece in a Word document using Calibri size 12 font and double spaced. Do not use any fancy formatting or fonts as it creates a lot more work on my end. Make sure to spell check before you submit, though pieces may be edited (and sent back for your approval before publishing.) You may submit more than one piece for consideration, but please stay on topic.
Please also include a bio in the third person under 200 words.
Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Living in Magick” by November 15, 2022. Please note that I cannot accommodate any late submissions or corrections. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
Ethics, Morals and Magical Honesty
Something we are very cognizant about is honesty within pieces submitted. Please only submit what’s organically and authentically yours to share. We do not wish to publish any magical or written plagiarism. This includes art, photography, concepts, practices, classes, rituals, prayers and experiences that were not created by you, or you do not have permission to share.
Are you looking for male submissions too or just women?
We are looking for all voices, from all genders, including trans and nonbinary peoples. LGBTQ and Minority voice are more than welcome, and should be heard!
