    Call for Book Chapters

    Working Title: Gender and Transgender in Modern Paganism

    Lead Editors: Sarah Thompson, Gina Pond

    The recent events surrounding Pantheacon 2011 and the internet-wide debate that followed it have raised awareness publicly of the issues surrounding gender and transgender in the wider Pagan community. This book will comprise a number of chapters, some invited and most by open submission, which will give all sides of the debate an opportunity to clearly state their positions. In a sense, the book will serve as a written equivalent of a talking-stick debate, whilst also making it possible to capture the sense of this historic time, as accurately as possible, in the words of the people involved. Though space is limited in the print version of the book, we hope to make all submitted papers that meet the submission criteria available for download on the web. The publication will be on a not-for-profit basis, with proceeds (if any) donated to a suitable charity/nonprofit (to be determined).

    Invited chapters are being solicited from as many key people as possible.

    It is our intention to make the book freely available under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0) license online as an e-book, supporting the major formats (PDF, Kindle, epub, etc.). Print copies will be made available by print-on-demand and will be orderable online, via Amazon or by order via any bricks-and-mortar bookshop. Though we are not currently seeking a publisher, this is not ruled out so long as such a collaboration would serve to make the book more widely accessible.

    We welcome chapter submissions on any of the following topics:

    • Women's mysteries as related to gender and transgender
    • Men's mysteries as related to gender and transgender
    • Experiences of redacting a tradition to deal with issues surrounding gender and sexual preference
    • Experiences of paganism from the point of view of transgendered people are particularly sought, though experiences of anyone who identifies as a member of any group less privileged than the normative default are also of significant relevance
    • Anything else conceptually related to the above and the concept of the book

    Who should submit:

        Anyone with direct experience of the issues outlined above will be given priority in refereeing, though anyone with something relevant to say may submit.
        For the avoidance of doubt, submissions are encouraged from all sides of the debate.

    Submission Guidelines:
    • No hard-and-fast size limit, but approx. 5 - 10 pages will be preferred.
    • Submissions should be made electronically.
    • The book will be typeset, so it's not necessary to make the submissions pretty.
    • Microsoft Word or RTF format is fine, LaTeX is even better if you know it, since that will be the system used to typeset the book.
    • Any illustrations or diagrams should be monochrome vector art in EPS format or images at at least 300 DPI at the printed resolution. If you need help with this, it can be arranged.
    • Write from the heart, in your own words. To misquote Steven King, do not go lightly to the page. All content is valid, though the editors will steer authors away from prose that could be interpreted as an ad-hominem attack.
    • Text may be edited for spelling, grammar and overall length. Major changes will be referred back to the authors. It is not the editors' will to censor any of the material in the book, but good writing and clear speech is something we nevertheless aim to achieve.
    • Submissions should identify the background of the author's path sufficiently for a reader to be able to place the chapter in context.


    • Notification of intent to submit a chapter: As soon as possible -- we need to know who is willing to submit a chapter as early as possible so we can maintain balance between the submissions. This will also help us make sure we have reviewers/subeditors lined up ahead of time. Please include a single-paragraph outline of the proposed content of the chapter and a brief author bio.
    • Chapter submission deadline: Midnight Pacific time, June 21st 2011
    • Chapter selection and reviewer/editor comments returned to authors, July 4th 2011
    • Final copy from authors due Midnight Pacific time, August 1st 2011
    • Final edit complete, galley proofs available: September 1st 2011
    • Ebook release: November 1st 2011
    • Artwork released to production: November 1st 2011
    • Paper versions available: (Tentatively) December 1st 2011
