At this time, we are not working under a thematic structure, but we do ask that material relate to the practice of magic and/or Paganism in the Midwest US. Our regional focus is what makes us unique, and it allows THE BALEFIRE to be a resource to practitioners in this part of the country (and world).
Regular sections to which you might consider contributing:
Community Services: profile of a Pagan/Occult charitable organization
Festival Forum: reviews & previews of area festivals and campouts
Fireside Chat: feedback from readers about articles, stories, etc.Group Guide: Highlights working covens, hearths, circles, groves or other bodies (or groups of related bodies)
Red Straps: discussions related to Fire Tribe (the woodbusters, firetenders, fire performers, water bearers and energy workers that maintain the bonfires at many Pagan gatherings)
Rites of Passage: announcement related to individual & group Rites of Passage
Teen Retreat: teen reflections & contributions related to magic and spirituality
Vendor’s View: profile of a festival, online, or brick & mortar vendor
We are specifically seeking columnists with interest and experience in the following areas:
- Ceremonial Magic -- Enochian, Goetia, Qabbala, etc.
Complete guidelines can be found here. Since we publish semi-annually, the Beltane issue covers Beltane, Midsummer, Lammas and Mabon (or, roughly April through September).
