This edition of our Watery Wednesday feed features news from the Covenant of the Goddess; an update on the continuing legal battle over the Matreum of Cybele; a call for submissions to a new Pagan traditions anthology; and two stories on the drought in the American west.
Covenant of the Goddess (a national Wiccan organization) accomplished a lot at their yearly Merry Meet convention, including establishing an Award for Outstanding Service; honored military Pagans; established an educational committee to fight sexual abuse; and adopted a formal statement on environmental issues. Read all the press releases from Merry Meet for all the details.
Megalithica Books, an imprint of Immanion Press (Stafford, U.K./Portland, OR, U.S.A) is seeking submissions for Finding the Masculine in Goddess' Spiral: Men in Ritual, Community and Service to the Goddess.
E-MAIL FOR INQUIRIES AND SUBMISSIONS: Erick DuPree: please put “Finding the Masculine in the Goddess Anthology” in your subject line.
This is an interview between myself and Tara Miller. Tara is a blogger at Patheos for the Staff of Asclepius, and is also the editor of the Anthology Rooted in the Body, Seeking the Soul, which has just been released by Immanion Press. I thought it would be interesting to interview her and learn more about the anthology. Disclosure note: I am the managing non-fiction editor of Immanion Press, but I think that the topic I've interviewed Tara about is one which needs more awareness in the Pagan Community.
