Readers and litdotorg members write daily asking me for details about upcoming litdotorg projects. Right now, there are two:
1. Litdotorg’s literary magazine: I’ve wrestled with a title for my planned quarterly publication. I think the name is Four Seasons of Litdotorg. Four Seasons is the main title, and of Litdotorg is the subtitle. Because it’s quarterly with a fall, winter, spring, and summer publishing plan, and because it’s a part of litdotorg, I think my name is quite clever! If anyone has a better suggestion, feel free to change my mind.
2. The Lucumí religious/spiritual magazine: I’ve wrestled with a title for this planned quarterly. I think the name is Odu: a Journal of the Lucumí Faith. Why Odu? Because the 256 odu encompass all aspects of our faith and our lives; and I want this journal to explore all aspects of our spirituality. And, of course, it’s subtitled a Journal of the Lucumí Faith because, well, it’s a journal revolving around the Lucumí faith. If anyone has a better suggestion, feel free to change my mind!
There will be more details regarding Four Seasons in the September issue of Majestic, so make sure your browsers are pointing to http://majestic.lit.org/wordpress. Or, join litdotorg, where I’m sure we’ll be discussing this in the open forum. I am publishing the submission guidelines through Majestic. Later, we might have a website dedicated to the journal on a litdotorg sub domain.
Details for Odu should be in October’s Majestic.
Yes, I’m a busy man!
