So much has changed in my life since I originally conceived of HUGINN
in 2008. My perspective and practice has changed dramatically, partly due to a move halfway around the world. HUGINN
was packed away with most of my possessions, but wyrd is inevitable and so many people have already contributed to HUGINN
; it's still absolutely necessary. With Yule approaching and the start of a new year, I feel it's time to make a fresh start and launch HUGINN
.HUGINN will be launched for Yule 2010 as an online journal/magazine at http://huginnjournal.com, with issues available for .pdf download for e-book readers or to print.HUGINN
is named for Thought, especially thought that goes out into the world and transforms it. Likewise, the voices aired in HUGINN
are those which heathenry needs most right now: of faith, of exploration, of mysticism, of global community, of experience, of experimentation, of radicalism, of aggressive acceptance of those the gods choose.
The subtitle (a journal of alternative heathen viewpoints) pretty much explains the general mandate of HUGINN
, which is to provide a forum and voice to viewpoints outside of the heathen mainstream -- what I would term 'liberal heathenry' or 'northern-tradition paganism' (loosely: anti-racist, pro-mysticism people).HUGINN is now accepting additional submissions for the Yule 2010 debut issue. Submissions are due by December 10.
The debut issue will deal with THE TROUBLE
with the various controversies and figures in heathen practice, theology, mythology, history and politics, and how heathenry fits into the greater 'neo-pagan' community.Writers
are encouraged to submit scholarly and/or experiential articles, stories, poems, columns, which deal with some aspect of THE TROUBLE, in either plain text (TXT) or rich text (RTF) to firstname.lastname@example.org
