NILVX 39

A project of The Mage's Lantern

About

NILVX (nil-lux) is an anthology of magic, mysticism, and the occult. The survived history of magic and the occult is built upon a legacy of artists and visionaries. We can build upon that legacy by stepping off the well-trodden paths, even momentarily, and give ourselves permission to create anew. Whether you are drawn to the Mysteries or actively part of the magical community, we welcome submissions from writers and artists from all diverse backgrounds and rich traditions. We seek creative works that amplify and refract magical traditions and symbols through modern consciousness. We want esoteric fiction that gives us insight into the magical nature of our reality, poetry that shakes the ground beneath our feet, rituals that transform the very expression of our spirit, and images that seize our passions. Challenge us. Surprise us. Move us. Make us think.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
