Call for Submissions: Yule 2011, "Mysticism"

Writers, artists, mystics, lend me your ears! HUGINN is seeking submissions for the Yule 2011 issue. Submissions are due by 1 December 2011.

The Yule issue will deal with MYSTICISM: enlightenment, illumination, initiation; your experiences of divine communion or transcendence; the Mysteries, the Darkness, the Light; how you experience being a mystic, or why you aren't; how others have and do bring about intimate union with the cosmos, ascetically or ecstatically; how the Tree grows within and without you.

For more information, check out huginnjournal.com/submissions.html

Good Disting!

We hope this Disting/Ewemeolc/Imbolg finds you happy and healthy! To help offset the hosting costs of HUGINN and in honor of the ancient -- and continuing -- Disting Market in Uppsala, we are offering a special treat.

From now until midnight GMT Wednesday 3 February, we are offering an original HUGINN-themed Disting wallpaper to anyone who donates $1 or more! The photograph is the work of HUGINN editor Talas Pái, taken near dawn on the morning of a past Disting, with the HUGINN logo subtly impressed on the lower corner.



How to get it: simply Paypal $1 or more to donate@huginnjournal.com, and in the donation form note your screen resolution. I send back your HUGINN wallpaper, customized to the exact size of your monitor (and with no watermark), BUT ONLY until midnight GMT on Wednesday, 3 February!

All the donations received -- from this and any other donation -- always go exclusively towards the upkeep of HUGINN, including monthly hosting and domain registration.








And thanks again, everybody, for supporting HUGINN!

LAUNCH: Yule 2010

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 huginnjournal@gmail.com. Artists are encouraged to submit high-resolution original full color OR black-and-white art in PNG, GIF, JPEG or TIFF to huginnjournal@gmail.com. For inquiries into full-color cover art, please email huginnjournal@gmail.com. New or not-yet-established writers and artists are more than welcome.

For other questions or comments, please email me at huginnjournal@gmail.com.

Further updates will be posted here, on Facebook (friend us!) and on Twitter. Please feel free to promote HUGINN anywhere people would be interested.
