LOTR Challenges 5 by judy

August 2013: Non-fiction

The August Challenge will once again have the theme "Nonfiction." You will not receive an element for this challenge; rather, we encourage all members to submit essays, research articles, and other nonfictional works related to Tolkien's legendarium.

The August challenge entries will be due Tuesday, August 14 and will be revealed on Thursday, August 16.

Please tag your essay "non-fiction" and " '13 august". Use the following special header for your nonfiction entry: Put "Nonfiction" as the theme, and as "type" indicate whether it is an essay, research, tutorial or other type of nonfiction. Make sure to put the name of your piece and your name in the subject line (e.g. "Sindarin Verbs by Scholar Sue").

To indicate your participation, please leave a comment to this post, or you can email the mods at aelfwina@gmail.com, virginia_lee_redcat@yahoo.com, or celeritassagittae@gmail.com.

I hope we'll have lots of participants for our August challenge!
