I'm looking for good writers to tell good stories. Stories may be
any length. Short is fine, long is better. Much, much better. For
slash, any rating, any pairing, members of the Fellowship preferred,
but please no immediate-family incest. This includes foster-parents,
so no Gandalf/Frodo, Bilbo/Frodo, Elrond/Aragorn, etc. Cousins are
not a problem. Light, dark, humorous or tragic--any tone will do.
Authors should be familiar with the source material, whether the
movie or the books or both, and should be able to write in a Tolkienesque
voice. No modernisms or slang, please. Anachronisms make me shudder.
Unpublished stories only. That means they cannot have been posted
anywhere, even on a list or a live journal.
The scary part: The editor will edit. This includes grammar, style,
characterization, and content. I will try to send editorial suggestions
to the authors as quickly as possible, and ask that revisions be completed
in the same way, though not, of course, so quickly that it's detrimental
to the writing process. Please have stories beta-read before submitting.
Please send submissions in Word if at all possible. If not, a text
file is fine. I request that stories be in Times New Roman 12 point
font, single-spaced, with indentation at the start of each paragraph.
I will do edits and comments in Track Changes whenever possible.
If your system doesn't have Track Changes, please let me know when
you submit the story. Things get messy otherwise.
Also seeking cover and interior art, black and white or color, for
both slash and gen zines.
Please send submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
