Contact the Editor

e*lix*ir welcomes submissions of literary work – poems, stories, memoirs, and personal essays, though not academic ones – that reflect an engagement with the Bahá’í Writings or teachings. We are looking not for didactic work, but for work of high artistic value in which the imagination of the artist engages with spiritual truth. The work of visual artists is solicited rather than considered via submission, but we welcome information about websites where we may view work by Bahá’í artists.

All work will be acknowledged, but time may not permit feedback on work that is not accepted. Any writer or visual artist (and any musician) who is interested in exploring a Bahá’í perspective in their art may wish to enroll in the Wilmette Institute’s workshop course, “Practicing the Arts,” which offers students the opportunity for intensive feedback on their work from established practitioners of these arts. The workshop is open to writers, visual artists, and musicians.
