The Medulla Review Submission Guidelines for the Holistic Bible
We are rewriting the Holy Bible, and we invite you to become a part of this epic endeavor. The goal of such a grand edit is to transform misinformation, hate, dogma, and limited spiritual concepts into information, love, holism, and unlimited spiritual potential.
Information About the Holistic Bible
Approximately every chapter of the Holy Bible will be rewritten in order to transform it into the Holistic Bible. The first chapter from many books of the Holy Bible have already been rewritten, and Synthesis (formerly Genesis) is nearing completion. We will periodically update the chapters that are available to rewrite HERE; please check chapter availability prior to submitting!
How to Submit
You may offer between one and seven rewritten chapters of the Holy Bible at a time, but only if they are in order. Meaning, you may submit Synthesis, Chapter 50-57, but not Chapter 5, 9, and 40. Do not submit over 5,000 words at a time. One of your chapters may be one sentence or many, and the length does not have to mirror the length of the chapters in the Holy Bible.
If you are serious about writing the Holistic Bible, we strongly suggest that you read at least some of the chapters currently available to the public at: holisticbible.org. By accepting the responsibility to rewrite even a chapter of the Holy Bible, you are taking the stance to become – and that you have become – inspired by energies outside of yourself. Your offering should be divined.
The first issue of The Medulla Review featuring works of the Holistic Bible will be published online on December 21, 2017, the first day of the Winter Solstice / Yule.
Email your offerings to: holisticbible (AT) gmail (DOT) com
Your offerings may be accepted in whole or in part for the online issue and the print version. In the subject line put Holistic Bible Offering and the chapter(s) you have written. Example: Holistic Bible Offering, Synthesis 31-33.
If your Holistic Bible offering is accepted, you may choose to have your bio on the bio page of this website. Your bio may be long (within reason) or short, with links, pictures, or anything you’d like to share about yourself to the world (within reason).
By offering your work, however, you are agreeing to become a part of the rewriting of the Holistic Bible without credit or name-calling. You will not be recognized in the online publications of The Medulla Review or the print publication of the Holistic Bible, your name will not appear anywhere in the Holistic Bible, nor will any other names of credit appear, except the Second Hand Collective.
You are further agreeing to relinquish all rights and attachments, legal or otherwise, to your offering. By submitting, your work becomes a part of the copyright of the Holistic Bible and is subject to editing.
