NILVX - A Book of Magic - Call for Submissions
NILVX (nil-lux) is a multimedia journal providing a platform for writers, philosophers, artists, and photographers inspired by magic and the occult. Whether you are drawn to the symbols and mysteries of the occult or actively part of the magical community, we welcome creatives from all diverse backgrounds and rich traditions. The survived history of magic and the occult is built upon a legacy of artists, visionaries, and mystics. And we can build upon that legacy by stepping off the well-trodden paths, even momentarily, and give ourselves permission to create anew.
We are looking for creative works that amplify and refract magical traditions and symbols through modern consciousness. We want esoteric fiction that gives us insight into the magical nature of our reality, poetry that shakes the ground beneath our feet, rituals that transform the very expression of our spirit, and images that seize our passions.
Challenge us. Surprise us. Move us. Make us think.
We currently accept the following submission types:
- Short Story
- Flash Fiction
We encourage submissions from LGBT individuals, people of color, and other underrepresented creatives with unique perspectives.
- Theme: The Tarot
- Type: Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry, Art, Photography, Video
- Deadline: December 21, 2016
Use one of these four windows as inspiration: 0 The Fool, XII The Hanged Man, XX Judgement, and XXI The World. Create your own image for these cards. Tell a story about the characters you see. Provide an in depth interpretation from one of your favorite decks. These are basic suggestions to get you going, but take this theme and create what you will.
