TWC Special Issue CFP: Fan Fiction and Ancient Scribal Cultures (6/1/18; 12/15/19)

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 - 9:14am
Transformative Works and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 1, 2018

This special issue of TWC explores the potential of fan fiction as an interpretative model to study ancient religious texts.

Fan fiction writers are readers of texts who become writers of their own texts. Fans engage with the universe created by the makers of a specific series, film, or book, to which they refer as “canonical” material. For example, they create new storylines, “repair” plots they do not agree with (fix-it fic), write prequels or sequels, and fill in scenes that are missing.

Rosette Maleficarum
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, November 5, 2017

The Rosette Maleficarum prides itself on literary works that promote the darker aspects of life. From a dilapidated doll that watched her owner abandon her, to the ghost of a soldier  who wanders the battlefield, the journal records to struggles of humanity. Even so, I’m open to little innocent lights, ones that bring back the nostalgia of our youth. But who knows? Just send a piece in, and perhaps it could be published here.
