Sobek Devotional PSA: Send your submissions in!

We’re closing in on the last six weeks-ish or so of the submission period, so if you’ve been working on submissions, or been thinking about it, now’s the time to send them in! Submissions will close on Dec 31st!

I’ve had a few more submissions in over the last month, including one short story, but I need more! Send in your art, your stories, your essays, your rituals, whatever you want, as long as it’s a devotional piece about Sobek.

If you need ideas, or are looking for inspiration, feel free to browse the 30 Days of Sobek posts, or the blog here in general, and see if anything takes your fancy. ❤

Remember: This anthology can’t happen without your submissions! So send me what you’ve got, and let’s make this anthology happen! 😀

The 108 Prayers Project

So I’m currently working through the Rituals for Transformation book at the moment as part of a lot of transformation and change work I’ve been doing this year, and while I’m not going to share the journalling work, I am, for some daft reason, writing a prayer/hymn/etc for each day. And for some other daft reason, I’m posting them all on tumblr: https://108prayers.tumblr.com/

I’m not giving myself any restrictions on length or topic or structure or whatever. The aim is just to write and reflect and see what I come up with. I’m sure if I come up with any good ones, I’ll post them over here, but a lot of this is personal stuff, rather than devotional, so I’m keeping it in a separate place for now. I’m not really looking for feedback or concrit, either. They’re just daily things that my brain comes up with, and in the interests of accountability, I’m letting you all know about it here. So if you’re at all interested in seeing what I come up with, feel free to give it a follow.

Sobek devotional news: Announcing ‘Lord of the Carnelian Temple’

Signal boost the shit out of this plz, y/y? :D?

OKAY SO. I might have mentioned I’d put my hand up to edit a Sobek devotional anthology with Bibliotheca Alexandrina, and after a lot of work and wrangling and sorting things out, it’s all official now. I have a title and everything!

Lord of the Carnelian Temple info

Anyone who works with Sobek, or has an interest in Sobek, including Sobek-Ra (because I know there are some of you out there, too), is more than welcome to submit work for this anthology. ILU all, let’s make this happen. ❤

I’m opening submissions in July, and running it through to the end of the year, so don’t let me down! I’ll be looking to release it by March next year, if you all do your part and send me enough material. Start working on your submissions so the world can finally have a Sobek devotional. I have dreamed about putting one of these together for years, and now it’s so close. SO CLOSE. Help me finally stop dreaming about this and make it a reality. ❤ ❤ ❤

I’m still deciding on what I’m going to include, but I’m going to at least try to get all my LAGG epithet translations done so there’s as full a list as possible (even though I’m missing, like, eight pages, thanks, google books, not helpful). There will probably be at least one ritual, some hymns, and some fiction. Maybe an essay if I feel inspired enough to do that.

So yes, bring me your Sobek things!

And if anyone wants to discuss this project privately, or talk about potential submissions, before things kick off in July, hit up sobekdevotionalATgmail.com. TYVM. ❤
