She Rises Goddess Feminist Activism Collective Writing Project: Call for Contributions
She Rises: What … Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality? Volume 3 Two books: The main book and a sectional booklet (poetry, prose, art, the like)
Coeditors include Deanne Quarrie, D.Min., Helen Hye-Sook Hwang, Ph.D.
I am the source, I dream the dreams, I am the spark, Creation lives in me. Jana Runnalls, The Source, Speaking in Tongues
Using as a springboard She Rises Volume 1 and Volume 2, the collective writing project of She Rises Volume 3 aspires to interweave new patterns in the tapestry of Goddess feminist activism. She Rises Volume 3 invites possible contributors by asking the questions: What do you envision for Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality? What is Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality for you? What do you seek from Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality? What are our practices that will bring more Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality into the world?
You may like to engineer the question on your behalf and answer it for us all. Here are some examples of the question: “What keeps me continuing in Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality?” or “What does Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality mean to me?”
The first volume evolved around stating/proclaiming the rational or cause of our Goddessian/Magoist commitment by answering the question, “Why Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality?” and the second volume took a step further to ask the “How?” question, “How… Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality?”
It is our hope that the question “What?” potentially produces a record number of ways we engage in Goddess Feminism, Activism and Spirituality. We foresee a possibility that She Rises Volume 3 may become a guidebook of the common cause as Goddess feminists and activists.
She Rises, Volume One, asked WHY? and 93 contributors answered the question with depth, honesty, insight, creativity, imagination, and inspiration. She Rises, Volume Two, asked How? and 96 contributors answered the question with depth, honesty, insight, creativity, imagination, and inspiration.
Now we are asking What? Your answers will offer:
- a guidebook for those beginning their journey with Goddess feminism, activism, and spirituality,
- a confirmation for those already engaged with Goddess feminism, activism, and spirituality,
- another thread in the tapestry of Goddess feminism, activism, and spirituality that is being woven by women and men all over the World.
Let’s weave a tapestry of answers! To be part of this weaving, please send your contribution to both emails (please indicate “She Rises Volume 3” in the subject line):
