Wee! This morning saw the launch of the newly rebuilt Polytheist.com, which has been a long-time in the works. The entire site has been rebuilt with a new back-end platform, and a new host and database service provider has been selected.
In addition, this week is full of fun announcements, including this one from this morning:
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!
As a new feature with the site, four times a year — Solstices and Equinoxes — Polytheist.com will launch an open call for submissions from our communities. What we are looking for is proposals for articles or essays on subjects, topics, perspectives or challenges related to living and practicing Polytheist religions and spiritual traditions today. These will be reviewed and the selected proposals will have a deadline worked out with the author, for inclusion in our Featured Voices track on the site (which will gain increasing focus and centrality on the site).
There is room for some Featured Voices guest writers to shift over into a regular column track, but to start, one-off articles is the way to go. The intent here is to break out of the echo-chamber that sometimes takes hold with online media in niche communities: it’s sort of like open-mic night, except still regulated in a minimal way behind the scenes to ensure continuity of quality in the content put forth. Please message our Facebook Page for instructions on how to submit a proposal!
Many blessings and much respect to all in our communities.
Please contact us on Facebook or email (polytheist.com at gmail dot com) for instructions on how to submit an article proposal!
Stay tuned tomorrow for another announcement at the site, regarding an upcoming featured column!
