Call for papers - sort of...

Hi all,

Recently, I've become editor for the English-language, semi-academic-oriented section of the magazine of the Dutch Tolkien Society Unquendor, Lembas. Part of that is having to find articles...

So, if you have, or know someone who has, an article that you wouldn't mind seeing published...

What I'm looking for:
- ideally between 5000 - 16000 words in length
- on any Tolkienian topic; may be a character study, may be fanfic-related, may be general, may be philosophical or theological; a study of some aspect/theme across various stories, biographical, lit crit, something on the Inklings, ...
- doesn't have to be exclusive, but I'd like to know if it's been published/presented elsewhere
- footnotes and references welcome (but not so academic that the references are as long as the article *g*)
- acceptance of contributions isn't automatic, but we're not all that harsh either

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

(Mods, please let me know if this is out of line?)

When are submissions due, or are these rolling submissions?

I will promote this as well on the SWG--thanks for the heads up! :)

Re the SWG: that'd be great:-)

For 'my' first issue the final due date is in November, so ideally I'd like to have initial submissions for that mid-September. After that it'd be rolling submissions (Lembas is published five times a year, and I have between 4-12 pages to fill for each issue).

Also ... is there an email address where you'd like people to send things? I'm working on the SWG post now. :)

If Word can open it, it's fine.

Layout etc.: if there's any publication format you're comfortable with for line spacing and such, feel free to follow it.
