Trilithon: The Journal of the Ancient Order of Druids in America is the official journal of the AODA. In its pages you can find inspiration for walking the path of druidry today, discussions of revival druidry past and present, on connecting with nature in all its forms, for practicing AODA druidry. We are particularly proud of the original druid scholarship that Trilthon has published over the last few years. For back issues, please see <LINK: http://aoda.org/publications/issues.html>
Our inaugural issue was published in 2014, and we publish yearly on the summer solstice. We welcome submissions from new and experienced individuals within the AODA and broader druid community. If you are a new writer, our editors are willing to work with you to refine your submission for publication. If you have something you’d like to contribute, please see our “Submissions” page for how to submit your work. Articles for our inaugural issue are due January 1st of each calendar year. We look forward to hearing from you!
