What We're Looking For:
This contest seeks work that speaks to the mission of Dante’s Heart.
Dante's Heart is an online venue looking for creative work that explores
how myth and fairy tale define and are defined by the human experience(s).
We want to celebrate the shock, wonder, bewilderment, suffering, and
enchantment of myth, of the fantastic; we want to hear about rivers running
with wine and ghosts jumping the Mississippi on motorcycles. We're
concerned with the neglect of myth, with the blindness of a culture
determined by myths it hasn't thought about; we demand (beg, entreat,
scream) that myths be thought about, made and remade, handled with a
delicate & angry/sad/ desperate/joyous exuberance.

Best wishes,

Daniel Fusch, Ph.D.
