History of Green Egg

Submitted by Wug on Fri, 03/08/2019 - 12:00

Green Egg Magazine was the flagship publication of the Church of All Worlds. During its long tenure it brought innovative, quality writing and information to the worldwide pagan community. In 2001, financial circumstances forced the closure of the magazine.

Even before Green Egg closed its doors in 2001, people were crying out for its return! After a long wait, we are happy to announce the Revival of Green Egg Magazine as an online publication!

"In 1968, following a move to St. Louis, the Church of All Worlds was incorporated. In March of that year, the GREEN EGG appeared. From its inauspicious beginnings as a one-page ditto sheet, it grew over 80 issues into a 60-page journal, becoming the most significant periodical in the Pagan movement during the 1970s and made Tim Zell, its editor, a major force in Neo-Paganism (a term which Zell coined). It was also the major instrument of the Church's expansion."
--J. Gordon Melton, Encyclopedia of American Religions, 1979

"It is popular today to talk about 'synergy'-a combination that has a greater effect than the simple addition of its components-and that perhaps best describes the effect of GREEN EGG. It connected all the evolving and emerging Goddess and Nature religions into one phenomenon: the Neo-Pagan movement."
--Margot Adler, Drawing Down the Moon, 1979 & 1987

"GREEN EGG gives me a new perspective... I read the GREEN EGG because it has in it things I do not find elsewhere."
--Robert A. Heinlein, author of Stranger in a Strange Land
