2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Harnessing Fire: A Devotional Anthology in Honor of Hephaestus

Quote
Call for Submissions!

We are interested in a wide variety of pieces, including (but not limited to) scholarly articles, short fiction, poetry, original translations of ancient texts, hymns, rituals and artwork.

Submitters are strongly encouraged to explore Hephaestus as a Blue-Collar God, as a Working Man’s God, as the Friend of Humanity, as the God of Results and Workmanship, as the Creator of Women, as the Olympic Rebel who speaks Truth to Power and spends his time with other Rebels. Hephaestus is the God with a day job, who went on strike, who loves smart and cunning women. As you explore Hephaestus as Craftsman, Rebel, Brother, Husband and Son, do not forget his role as Father: his children by Kharis (Aglaia) are “good repute”, “acclaim”, “prosperity” and “welcome.”

All works must be original, not public domain. No plagiarism. Previously published submissions are acceptable, provided the author retains all rights to the work. Authors retain all rights to the submission. Upon acceptance, the author will be sent a permission to publish form along with a request for a short biography to include in the anthology.

The editor reserves the right to make any minor changes in the case of grammar, spelling and formatting concerns. The editor also reserves the right to request modification of submissions and to reject submissions as necessary.

No monetary compensation will be provided. Proceeds from all sales will be divided between charitable donations in the name of the God, and production costs for future publications from Bibliotheca Alexandrina. All contributors will receive a coupon code which will allow them to purchase three copies of the anthology at cost.

Acceptable length is anywhere from 100-10,000 words (with the exception of poetry), and the submissions period will run from 25 April 2011 – 31 October 2011, with the projected release date of January 2012. Please send your submission either in the body of the email or as a .doc/.docx attachment with “Hephaestus Devotional” in the subject line to starling.foster@gmail.com.
