Category Archives: Walking the Worlds Journal
Check out the TOC for our latest issue of Walking the Worlds. This issue should be available next week and will be sent out to subscribers. For more info, see here. This issue introduces a few changes. We will be including book reviews from now on, of which we have several in this issue and going forward, while there is a main topic for each issue, we’ll also be taking articles outside that topic too. I think it makes for a richer journal. Anyway, here is a sneak peak at issue 8:

All copies of the Summer 2017 issue of Walking the Worlds have been sent out. The next issue is now accepting submissions. The topic will be ‘Text and Tradition”.

We’re also looking for contributions for our upcoming Summer 2016 issue. The theme for this one will be Divination. We’re looking for essays, academic articles, and book reviews (See the archive for Bryn Mawr book reviews for the type of review we’re looking for).
Deadline for issue 6 is June 1, 2017. Inquiries and/or submissions should be sent to me at krasskova at gmail.com.
Now that issue 4 has been put to rest (I sent out copies today to subscribers), it’s time to start thinking about issue 5.
The topic for Issue 5 will be Ecstatic Practices and we’re looking for essays and articles dealing with traditional and perhaps not so traditional ecstatic practices, ways of achieving an altered state throughout the vast array of our polytheisms. For example: Is your God or Goddess specifically associated with such practices? How can these practices be used to open up to the Gods? How do we integrate them into our modern lives? What are our ancient role models?
If you are interested in submitting a piece, please contact me at krasskova at gmail.com. The deadline for submissions is October 1. More information may be found here.
Just a couple more weeks until the deadline for submissions to Walking the Worlds issue 4. If you’re working on an article or essay, you still have a bit of time to finish up. See our website for more details.
The deadline for submissions to Issue 4 of Walking the Worlds is only a month away. If you’re thinking about submitting an essay or article, or you have one in the works, it’s all due May 1.
The topic for this issue is “Polytheism and Philosophy” and the submission guidelines may be found at the link above. It’s already shaping up to be a great issue, folks.
Issue 3 of Walking the Worlds, “Magic and Religion” is now available. All contributor copies and subscription copies have been sent out as of yesterday. (If you need to renew your subscription, you can do that easily here.
The next issue will be on ‘Polytheism and Philosophy.” The deadline is May 1, 2016. If this is a topic about which you think you have something to say, please consider submitting an article or essay. The polytheist world birthed major philosophical movements, and polytheism itself developed hand in hand with philosophies designed to teach one how to live as a decent human being. Many of the philosophers still studied today like Plato, Socrates, Proclus were devout polytheists (a fact often elided from philosophy classes and classical discourse). As polytheists, philosophy is our birthright. Check the above website for submission guidelines and think about adding your voice to Walking the Worlds.
