Osculum Infame: Transgressive Rites and Rituals

Osculum Infame: Transgressive Rites and Rituals will be an eBook exploring rite and ritual as transgressive art. It will be published on Smashwords in late 2013.

We are looking primarily for practical articles describing new and original rites and rituals that cross barriers and challenge social norms. Although the bulk of the book will be made up of practical working material, we will consider articles relating to historically significant rites, philosophical discussions on the nature or significance of transgression, and first person accounts of actual rites and rituals. Original artwork will also be accepted for consideration.

Shock value alone will not win us over. The shock must be the lightning strike that ignites the forest, the bell that calls transformation, the knock that opens the door.

Submission Deadline: September 1st, 2013

Length: 2,000 to 5,000 words.

Format: Articles must be in doc, docx, or txt format. Art and photographs must be in jpg, tiff, or gif.
