Call for Submissions by Loki’s Abriel:
Current Deadline: August 1, 2008.
Since I’ve been getting tapped for it for months I finally decided to just buckle down and start collecting submissions for this now. I will be compiling together a devotional for Skadhi and will be accepting submissions for it. I am looking for prayers, rituals, poems, stories of personal experiences with Her, artwork, or anything else you feel inclined to share. There is no limit on how many submissions you can make and as of right now there is no limit on the length of prose submissions.
There are a couple of things I DON’T want:
-I will not accept any works that promote racism/racialism, sexism, homophobia, trans-phobia, bigotry towards any religion or creed, or otherwise promotes hateful views towards any individual or group.
-I cannot in good conscience accept any submissions that refer to Loki and/or the Jotnar derogatorily. Sorry, just can’t. If you want to refer to Skadhi’s hanging of a snake over His head or the time when He tied a goat to His package to make Her laugh fine but remarks like calling Him “the evil Trickster” or anything else that disrespects Him outright will go into the trashbin. I don’t care how you personally feel about Loki but if you absolutely cannot restrain yourself don’t bother submitting anything. As for the Jotnar, please remember that though Skadhi is Aesir, She is also a Jotnar and disrespecting Her family scores no points for you.
-Erotica is fine but if you go this route please, please, please I beg you from the bottom of my heart, keep it tasteful!
-Anything written for other Gods that are close to Her (Her Father, Her ex Njord, Her Son-in-law Frey, etc) is fine.
Deadline…this will be a long one. Right now I’m going to set it for August 1, 2008.
Sorry, there is no monetary compensation and right now I can’t promise free copies. It all depends on how things look, how many people submit, etc.
Mail to lokis_abriel AT hotmail DOT com and be sure to put “Skadhi devotional” in the subject line.
Feel free to pass this on or repost to anyone you think might be interested. Thank you.
