Dead, Mad, or a Poet: A Journal to F(a)eri(e)|
Are you divinely inspired? Are you mad? Are you a F(a)eri(e)? Do any of those sound like fun? Then this is the journal for you.
Articles are welcome, but this is not another Pagan mag about being Pagan, a witch, or even Feri. Scholarship, we love scholars, they are tasty, but this is not Pagan Studies. We are not trying to appeal to the Academy here, though we do love us some intellectual rigor at times. Send us art, send us poetry, send us moonshine, send us tales. Send us mythic reinventions and dream screeds. Send us strange treasures sent by bottle by your Muse and washed up on the beach of your soul. Send us shamanic ravings and maps into Faerie. Send us spells and rituals only if they have aesthetic merit, or are guaranteed to work.
You don't have to be a Feri initiate or student to write for us; nor do you have to be crazy. But it helps.
Poetry: 3-5 poems, any length. We prefer image-rich and evocative, loving attention to language...all of the things that make poetry good. We aren't attached to certain styles, but we know what we like.
Fiction: Any length up to 10,000 words. Microfiction or flash fiction welcome.
Non-fiction: Creative non-fiction on the general theme. Query for articles.
Art: Please. Specific details about format forthcoming.
Strange unclassifiable hybrid genre work: Yes.
If you are dead, and successfully submit work, we will certainly publish it, as long as it is in the public domain.
For the nonce, Dead, Mad, or a Poet will be available as a PDF file. We will explore other options as they become necessary or feasible. We would love to be able to provide it as an iPhone app, but lack the necessary technical skill. For now.
We perpetuate the age-old punk rock pulp tradition of paying our authors and artists in fame, glory, contributor copies, and the promise of cheese sandwiches. We promise to pay you in cheese sandwiches some time before you die, and you promise not to die. If you break your promise, we will visit your grave with a cheese sandwich, and weep a small tear.
We hope to some day pay our contributors in real money. To that end, this outfit needs to become a viable concern. To that end, we need you, the glorious reader, to contribute. More about that later.
