Call for Submissions

I have been pleased to have had a blog published at the Fellowship of the King. They have now sent out a call for poetry, short stories, and essays. Check it out!

At present, TFOTK will be launching the third installment of their fantasy/sci-fi trilogy issue. For those who would like to participate, your submissions of short fiction, poetry, and essays will be welcome, both for the issue format and rotation on the magazine website.

About Brenton Dickieson

“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing. This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box. Brenton Dickieson is a father, husband, friend, university lecturer, and freelance writer from Prince Edward Island, Canada. You can follow him on Twitter, @BrentonDana.

    Sounds interesting, but I seem to be proving too ‘low tech’ to find out more by what I would have thought the obvious expedient of browsing around their website (alas!).

    • Not there? Perhaps it is a standing offer, I don’t know.

      Hi David, I was wondering about that, too, so I decided to copy and paste the e-mail link (which was not embedded) to query the editor. I mentioned where I had seen the call for submissions (thank you, Brenton!) and asked if she’d be interested to see my slice of the afterlife featuring Chesterton, Hitchens, and Boswell. I was a bit nervous about doing this, since it had failed as Mythgard flash fiction, but I cleaned it up some and felt slightly confident. I heard back from her and she is willing to look at it. (More cleaning up to do!)

      I really liked your Kilns with hen flash fiction. In fact I loved it, for its spirit. And hope that maybe you have something like this in mind for them where you can be more explicit because of their fan fiction policy. It might be perfect. On the plus side, we’ve already had our rejections, so we know what we’re getting into. 🙂

        Thanks for the report, and the appreciation!

        Did I mention anywhere public that Jemima the hen was an historical personage and the first story fictionalized something that Lady Jill Freud (June Flewett) told us, when she visited The Kilns? (There’s a lovely interview with her among the external links to the “June Flewett” Wikipedia article, by the way.)

            It is, isn’t it! I am very glad she gave an interview – it would be jolly if she wrote a memoir or something, as well. I was doing a fair bit of oral history interviewing for the Wade Center, but she decided at that point that she did not want to record a formal interview, which is fair enough – but it was lovely hearing about her time at The Kilns, and also (in those only-beginning-to-be-restored days) to hear what was where and what this and that (a given mantelpiece, for instance) were like.

            She’s also been very kind about my little Mythgard efforts, the first of which I enthusiastically dedicated to her before asking her if I might.

            (Cross-referencing to the Lindskoog re. (e.g.) the A.N. Wilson bio post, she told us there were some twenty places where she asked him to correct something after the first ed. had appeared – which, as far as I remember, he did: which can be discovered by comparing references to her in the first and second (paperback) eds.)

            Yes, definitely – quite a striking comparison in the one Douglas Gresham passage! I’ve never seen Mrs. Lindskoog’s Wilson-related book, and have yet to follow up your link to a reposting re. its matter…

          grand to have a personal connection with the hen-keeper for Jemima the hen fiction. ^_^
