Hyping the Pan Devotional! The deadline has been extended to the end of July.
Please spread the word! Submissions are coming in but the more, the better!
(Please note that the address on the NA page is missing a letter - I've just asked for this to be corrected - if someone has submitted something and NOT had a response, that may be why - all submissions I've received have been acknowledged).
Bibliotheca Alexandrina is delighted to announce that we are now accepting submissions for a Pan devotional. Please spread this announcement far and wide.
This devotional will focus on Pan, the Goat-Footed God of healing, panic, dancing, music, etc. All his historical aspects in myth, cult, art and philosophy are fair game. Modern experiences are also desired but they must have the above logical foundation or be clearly labelled as opinion.
Entries on other deities will be accepted if and only if they focus on said deity’s relationship to Pan or historical syncretic realities.
Faunus (or Sylvanus) as related to Pan
The Nymphs, as related to Pan
Pan through the ages
Pan in literature....
The following types of entries will be considered:
Hymns, prayers, poetry;
Ideas for rituals, festivals, meditations and divination;
Scholarly essays ;
Opinion essays and personal experiences;
Original short stories.
Non-fiction pieces should be at least 300 words and should not normally exceed 3000 words – if your idea for a submission will be longer than this, please contact the editor. Submissions should be documented as needed; if a submissions states something as a fact, this should be referenced as to source. The editor prefers the Harvard (in text, author-date) form of citation, see: http://libweb.anglia.ac.uk/referencing/files/Harvard_referencing.pdf
The editors reserve the right to make minor changes to any submission for purposes of spelling, punctuation, grammar, style, formatting and clarity. The editors also reserves the right to reject any submission that is deemed not commensurate with the criteria set forth above. The final decisions about inclusion for the anthology remain with the editors.
As with all of our devotional anthologies we cannot provide payment or contributor copies, since the proceeds will be used for charitable donations and to help bring out further volumes in the Bibliotheca Alexandrina line. Please read the BA policies: http://www.neosalexandria.org/publishing.htm
Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. All submissions should be in MS Word or compatible format (.txt or .rtf). All submissions must be sent by email.
