You found my old blog. Thanks for visiting! For my new writing, visit mikesententia.com.
Taylor Elwood, managing non-fiction editor at Immanion Press and fellow blogger on Magical Experiments, is putting together an anthology, Magic on the Edge 2.0. I have an article in it on the healing work for my friend with chronic hives, and how I reprogrammed ethereal software. If you’ve ever wanted to be a published author (in a real dead-tree book), this is a great way to do it.
Articles should be 3-6k words long. To put that in context, an average print page is 250 words, and most of my technical how-to-do-magick posts are 1,000 words. Even if your practice doesn’t fit into one of his categories, email him anyway, since he’s pretty open to new approaches to magick.
Remember, no one makes money on magick books. But this is a great way to get your ideas out there, get your work in a printed book, and get some great professional editing from Taylor, which helped me improve as a writer, and I’m sure will help you, too.
Here’s the details:
Magic on the Edge 2.0 is an anthology of experimental occultism, testing the cutting edges of magical practice to reveal intriguing experiments and new ideas, to push the future of magical practice forward and provide further inspiration for other practitioners. It is edited by Taylor Ellwood, the managing non-fiction editor of Immanion Press. It is a sequel to Magick on the Edge, which was published in 2006 by Immanion Press
We are looking for articles 3k to 6k words in length on topics that can include the following:
• Innovative explorations of magical traditions
• Experimental techniques with contemporary disciplines such as space/time magic, internal alchemy, laboratory alchemy, ceremonial magic, neoshamanism, etc.,
• Creative meditation practices
• Unconventional approaches to ceremonial magic and other traditional practices of magic
• The blending of art or science with magic.
• Each article needs to include a practical exercise for readers
• Got an idea? Run it by me and I’ll give you feedback (see contact info below).
The deadline for articles has been pushed back to October 15th. We are looking to publish this anthology in 2013.

Please share this with anyone you know who might be interested in participating in this anthology.
