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?)

Tree and Flower Awards Extension!

First of all, we'd like to thank all of those who have made nominations over the last several days; your enthusiasm is most appreciated!

However there are still a few subcategories without nominations, or which only have one or two; also we are a bit behind in working out the voting polls.

Therefore, we are extending the nominations for one week (to August 24), and all other associated dates for the awards will also be pushed up a week. If you had planned to make nominations before this but did not get a chance, now you can. You can also get in a few more now if you were making nominations.

In relation to this, there are still a few works that were nominated twice, as well as a couple that were previous winners. I will be making a post later on with the nominated stories, including the time-stamp on the nomination.

We'd appreciate anyone who has the time to check through and see if they can help us spot the duplicates; this will give the nominators a chance to edit their nomination if they need to, and nominate something else.

I hope this will boost the nominations!

Tree and Flower Awards Extension!

This post contains nominations for all main categories EXCEPT Characterization. Those will be in a separate post to go up some time tomorrow. That list is very long, and will not all fit into the same post with this one.

I have listed all nominations received by approximately 8PM CDST time, Aug. 17. I have included the time stamp on each nomination, since in the event of duplications, the earliest nomination is accepted.

Please help us out if you spot duplicate or ineligible nominations; just comment here on this post, or at the post I will make for Characterizations.
