I - Kelley- am not affiliated with this anthology, just signal boosting:
Call for Submissions! I am now accepting submissions for Anointed: A Devotional Anthology for the Deities of the Near and Middle East, to be published by Bibliotheca Alexandrina.
I am interested in prayers (old and new) and recitations; chants, reflections and guided meditations; nonfiction essays, poems and short fiction; rituals for solitaries and groups; mini-dramas for rituals; music and musical notation; art and photography; recipes (for foods, scented oils, incense, et cetera); devotional craft ideas (prayer beads, votive holders, et cetera); and more.
The cultures and regions covered by Anointed include (but are not limited to): Anatolia (including the Hittites and Mittani), Assyria, Canaan, Carthage, Crete (including the Minoan civilization), Cyprus, Israel and the Levant (including the Philistines), all of Mesopotamia (including the Babylonians and Sumerians), Palmyra and Petra, Persia, Phrygia, Phoenicia, the Sabeans, Ugarit and many others.
I am particularly interested in such Deities and beings of legend as Al'Lat, 'Anat (Anath), Apsu, Atargatis, Athirat (Asherah), Astarte, Ba'al, Chokmah (Wisdom), Dagan, Ea, Enki, Ereshkigal, Horon, Ilu (El), Inanna, Ishtar, The Kathirat, Marduk, Rashap (Reshef), Shapsh (Shapshu), Shekhina, Tiamat, Yamm, and many, many others. Since Anointed covers such a vast region, this is a far from complete list. Contact me if you have any questions.
I am *not* interested in Lovecraft and Cthuluverse pieces. Anything involving aliens, Sitchin or Von Daniken. Anything about Lilith. Anything having to do with demonology.
Submissions must be original, and your own work. All proceeds from the sale of Anointed are donated to a worthy charity; I therefore cannot offer any payment. All submissions are offerings to the gods, and therefore voluntary.

Submissions open now and close on 'Ashuru Shamni (11 January 2011). Send all submissions, comments and questions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me on FaceBook at http://www.facebook.com/canaanite.tess.dawson
