    PMP: Green Egg, Online Publications and more

    in Spirituality

    It was previously announced and scheduled that Hollis Taylor would be joining KaliSara and RevKess for this edition of PMP to talk about Green Egg Magazine and the future of that publication. This has changed. According to a press release from Green Egg:


    (February 22, 2015) - Green Egg, a popular 47-year-old Pagan magazine founded by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, has announced that it is returning to publishing as 4 issues per year, instead of going to a blog-only format, as previously announced. The magazine decided to return to its traditional format after hearing from readers that they overwhelmingly preferred quarterly issues. The magazine will remain an online e-zine and will not be published in print.


    Due to discarding the webzine blog format, Hollis Taylor is no longer publisher. The position of publisher will be co-managed by Sylveey Selu, long-time webmistress for Green Egg, and Ariel Monserrat, the magazine's publisher for the past 8 years.


    Ariel and Sylveey will be joining the hosts instead and will talk about the history of GE and where they see things going in the future. They will also give teasers for the return of the Green Egg Radio Hour, which will be joining the family of programming here on PMPChannel. The GE podast will also see the return of Zaracon to our happy little family as producer.


    At this time, RevKess and KaliSara would like to join Ariel and Sylveey in wishing Hollis Taylor the very best for her future endeavors. Hollis will be joining RevKess and KaliSara on the 22nd to talk about her online publication, DiversiTree.


    Questions regrading Green Egg can be sent to Ariel at greeneggzine@gmail.com or to Sylveey at sevierdawn@yahoo.com.
