Call for Submissions: Just as I am: Hymns Affirming the Divine Female


Girl God Books is accepting submissions for our upcoming ''Hermnal'' - Just as I am: Hymns Affirming the Divine Female.

Because we want to avoid duplication, we will continue to update this post with a list of re-written hymns. Please note, we have another collection of Goddess Chants and songs - as well as one specific to Solstice Carols. This book will focus on re-writing patriarchal hymns into woman-affirming ''Hermns.''  We are also interested in joyous artwork of women singing or playing instruments.

So far, we have:

Our Mother (re-written by Patricia Lynn Reilly)
