    Hagstone Journal of Occult Arts Seeks Submissions!

    *** I have received express permission from one of the site admins to post this! Thanks! While I'm not much more than a lurker around these parts, I really do feel that this project may be of interest to some folks on this forum. I have really enjoyed the breadth of practice that is represented on this site, and feel that your voices would be a HUGE asset to this publication! ***

    About Hagstone

    “Any occultist who claims to have secrets is a fake. All wisdom is an open book to those who would read it.”

    Letter from Robert Cochrane to Joe Wilson, 1966

    Hagstone is critical, contemporary, alive.

    Hagstone aims to provide the opportunity for witches and magical practitioners of varying backgrounds, ideologies, and subject positions to promote and engage in intelligent, critical discussion and sharing. When witchcraft and magic are concerned, misinformation and misrepresentation rule, and Hagstone boldly puts one step forward in an effort to change that. Many people (practitioners and scholars alike) do not understand, on a fundamental level, the unending variety and innovation that exists today, pioneered by those who call magic and witchcraft their home – and thus Hagstone is born. Hagstone is not witchcraft 101.

    Hagstone is magic without bullshit.

    Hagstone aims to spread information in an egalitarian way. As such, fancy hardcover hand-bound books are not appropriate for us. We take our direction from the world of zines – affordable DIY books, often photocopied, so that our voices may reach people of varying financial situations. We aim to combine the DIY and anarchistic ethic of zines with a developed and mature sense of aesthetics and design for a final product that is both beautiful to behold, easy on the wallet, and nourishing for the mind.

    Call For Submissions

    SUBMISSION DEADLINE: OCTOBER 31, MIDNIGHT, 2012

    Hagstone Journal of Occult Arts welcomes submissions from all practitioners of magic (in its various incarnations) and/or witchcraft for our inaugural issue.

    We are interested in both deeply personal pieces about one’s own magical practice, as well as more scholarly essays which rely heavily on theory. And if your work falls somewhere in between – that’s okay too! All voices have a place in Hagstone.

    Magic is a broad subject. It occurs across cultures and times in thousands of different forms. Hagstone has, at its core, a wish to celebrate and acknowledge all paths and traditions. Whether you’re a Luciferian, Hermeticist, Wiccan, Celtic Reconstructionist, a Spiritualist medium, we want to hear from you.

    We especially welcome submissions concerning non-European forms of witchcraft, magic, and energy work, which may use a different name. We are not currently accepting visual works, poetry, or fiction.

    Here’s a list of topics we find to be super interesting. We’d love to hear your take on anything listed below. However, this list is far from exhaustive! If it’s not listed, we’d still likely love to hear about it. What would you like to see? If you can help make this list better and more inclusive, don’t hesitate to email us at HagstoneJournal at gmail dot com


    • queer/non-binary/trans* issues in magic, witchcraft, and/or paganism
    • dis/ability issues in magic, witchcraft and/or paganism
    • personal & experiential magic
    • magic or witchcraft as mediumship
    • spirit contact/mediumship
    • group/solitary magic
    • magic in praxis: method, technique, etc
    • non-pagan magic
    • non-Eurocentric magic

    So your very first post on this board is an ad campaign for someone else....

Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed.

    She has received permission from me to post this and only after I've even discussed it with the other admins.

    No one is required to submit any info or even participate. This is strictly volunteer based.

    Though, if members feel this crosses boundaries, I will certainly take these concerns seriously.

    Bows out, complaint withdrawn. Thanks for the clarification.

    EDIT: Notes top of OP, shrug, I'm in a foul mood this evening and it seems to be giving me tunnel vision.

    I read through the tumblr page, and I think this is a fantastic idea. I think some people around here could have fantastic submissions.

    I don't think I'd have a lot to add to this project, but I must say that it sounds like a really good idea! I'll be keeping an eye on that website. Thanks for sharing!

    Re: Hagstone Journal of Occult Arts Seeks Submissions!

    I'll have to take another look when I can get onto a non-access-restricted-computer, because I cannot view the tumblr site. The idea is interresting though, I'm not super awesome at forming whole coherent thoughts.
