The CEO is a collective project. It started as a collective project, but now the collective has expanded below the surface. We are both easily identifiable and anonymous, so do not expect short biographies at the end of posts. We, including you, can choose to use a “real” name, a pseudonym, heteronym, or any other type of word ending with “nym”. We, including you, accept simultaneous and/or multiple submissions for our three main modalities of publication:

  • The print journal Parasol, which started the CEO, and usually includes essays, articles, experimental academic writing, and the unusual but charming odd piece. No word limit, but please be aware that the longer your piece is, the less of a chance it gets of squeezing-in with the competition. Each issue runs around 200 pages, give or take.
  • The blog, which, as you can see, varies immensely in length and theme, including articles, from essays to opinion pieces. If you have something interesting to send us and want a quick process, you should probably send it to be published online. We will accept anything that catches our eye, from analytical diatribes expanding on the usual territory of the CEO to weird poetry. As long as it feels relevant to us, it is in. And again, as with Parasol, there are no word limits, but we may (and most likely will) break longer pieces into parts for the better digestion of online readers.
  • Books is an avenue we’re trying to pursue. At the moment they would have to be really on topic for us to be able to support them. The topic in question being the crossover of magick/philosophy with probably an emphasis more on the philosophy. Genuinely interesting innovative ontologies that do not shy away from esoteric possibility are of interest. Theory-fiction that achieves this by hintology is also a possibility we might consider.

For proposals specific to Parasol, Book-length submissions, and proposals specific to the blog (to appear in our online archives), or that you are unsure where it would fit, send in documents, finished or not, outlines, and whatever else, to, All submissions should go to this email.

We accept submissions year-round and ask you to familiarize yourself with the modality of your choice before submitting.
