Call for Submissions:
Re-visioning Medusa: from Monster to Divine Wisdom.
We had so much fun with the My Name is Medusa book that we decided to put together an anthology too!
The Girl God is accepting submissions for our upcoming Anthology of women’s writing: Re-visioning Medusa: from Monster to Divine Wisdom.
“Medusa is one of those ancient goddesses who was converted into a monster by later cultures.” -Patricia Monaghan
We want to hear from women about their insight into the greatly misunderstood Goddess. Personal essays (up to 2,500 words), academic papers, poetry and (black and white) art are welcome.
We hope to radically re-vision this misunderstood Goddess.
Please send your submissions to
email@example.com by January 31, 2017.
Edited by Glenys Livingstone Ph.D., Trista Hendren and Pat Daly
Scheduled publication: June 2017
To find out more about Medusa, read “Medusa: Sister, Mother, Abyss – Mirror” by Glenys Livingstone Ph.D. here.
“Medusa was “once a solar divinity, a great goddess whose very name means ‘ruler of humanity’”: that is part of the significance of Her snake hair … they twist and turn like Sun’s rays: isn’t it obvious once you have seen it?” –Glenys Livingstone
