The Common Language Project

This year, we invite you into ritual. What repetitions anchor you into the day? What sacred rites mark your milestones? A candle lit, a coin tossed, a sacrifice to assuage the enraged elements; grand or granular, our lives are framed in ritual. Share with us the secrets of your everyday, map the pilgrimage you’re planning to take, bring us into the sacred space and perform your wonders.

THE COMMON LANGUAGE PROJECT IS CURRENTLY ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS
