whi-sps asked: how does someone get this fantabulous zine? Because I would really like one.


Answer:

We’re still wading through the production process! It should be available in the fall. :) Would you like us to put you on a mailing list?

childofthefoxes asked: I'm wondering about the possibility of a second issue. If things are looking good for Hagstone to continue beyond the first issue, when do you think we could expect a second? I ask because I've just had an idea for a submission, but I wouldn't be able to finish it in time to submit it for the first one, even with the deadline extension. Sorry to bother you, and good luck with putting together Issue One, I really look forward to seeing it!


Answer:

Holy late reply!

Our editorial board has been incredibly swamped over the past few months, so the project is a little delayed - we’re hoping for an autumn release. So if you still have something you’d like to send along, PLEASE do! We’d love to read it!

Entries are officially due today, but I know our selection committee won’t be meeting for another few weeks due to various busy things, so you need until mid-November to finish something, that is a-ok by us.

Another reminder to just send us a relevant blog post, if you’re a busy bee and aren’t sure what to write. And hey, what’s a better way to spend Samhain (if you’re in the Northern hemisphere) than to reflect on and write about your practice?

Hope to hear from you soon!

the-lion-machine asked: I have an essay about women as buyers and sellers of medieval magical services & goods, including descriptions of the goods in question. Is this in line with Hagstone's interests? Also, is there a maximum length?


Answer:

That sounds AWESOME!

There isn’t a maximum length, no - but if your piece is book chapter length, we may cut it down a bit. Either way, send it along, we’d love to take a look!

Another way to think about submissions - got blog posts?

At Hagstone we would like to give yall another way to think about submissions for this zine. What you submit doesn’t have to be strictly ‘new.’ Have you written a blog/tumblr post that you think would be suitable? FUCKING AWESOME. Send it to us!

The inspiration for this zine was not epic tomes of academic writing. To be frank, it was the breadth and critical bent of discussion of witchcraft, magic, and Pagan practice that I’ve seen on tumblr. On this site, I’m seeing some radical shit being discussed and written about, all in the format of a simple tumblr rant. Do I see that critical shit happening at Pagan gatherings and occult conferences? To be frank, not really. What’s happening on tumblr is unique and amazing, and chances are a lot of what you folks have already written on your blogs is exactly what Hagstone is looking for.

Just something to think about.

If you have the time, sift through your blog or tumblr. See if there’s any posts you’ve made that you really like.

(Bonus points for social justice.)

Hedge And Herbs: Hagstone Journal (a new magic/occult zine) wants to hear from you! Deadline Oct 31! →

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@gmail.com or send us an ask.

  • 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 & social justice/activism/protest/politics
  • magic in praxis: method, technique, etc
  • non-pagan magic
  • non-Eurocentric magic
  • witchcraft, magic, & hetero/cis-normativity
  • atheistic magic
  • issues of representation within magic, witchcraft and/or paganism
  • syncretism in magical practice
  • alternate forms of magical practice
  • the intersections between religion and magic
