Call for Esoteric Poems

So in the Academic world, they have all these conferences about very specific things. And you wouldn’t think they’d have a conference about certain things, but they do. Occasionally I get word of one, and if I think it’s something you might be interested in, I’ll post it here.

If you would like to go to an academic conference, you must submit whatever the Call is asking for, usually an abstract with a certain word length on a range of topics. If you submit it to them like they ask for, you might get in! Remember to only submit abstracts or submissions to conferences you will actually be able to attend–they don’t pay for your transportation or anything.

That said, consider this conference:

CALL FOR POEMS for the

ESOTERIC POETRY INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION esotericpoetry@googlemail.com

YOU ARE INVITED TO SEND short poems of up to eight lines (not including the title) on an esoteric subject. These may refer in a general sense to `inner’ knowledge, this may be esoteric in the sense of inner knowledge as in:

Astrology,

Alchemy

Gnosticism

Magic

but may also be understood in relation to the experience of seeking an understanding of an unending number of life’s challenges or disciplines: justice, plumbing, child rearing and the perfect omelette spring to mind.

Poems may for example reveal hitherto unknown secrets, conceal them, or relate to the subject matter in another way. All poems will be judged solely on literary merit

Competition sponsored by

The Cambridge Centre for the study of Western Esotericism
