About

Rituals are a core part of the human experience. Whether sacred or secular, they provide a point of connection to the world beyond us, and even to our deeper selves. When we take a step back and examine our lives, we find that our existence is weaved together by rituals— whether they involve our morning habit of grinding coffee beans as we prepare breakfast, or something large-scale such as a cultural or religious holiday. Whatever their purpose, rituals ground us in a society that’s in constant flux. In this anthology, writers can explore the underlying significance, emotional aspects, and nuances of a particular ritual. Send us your best nonfiction, poetry, or work that blends these forms. We are looking for innovative writing that engages in new ideas.
