Call for Faerie Lore Submissions

I received this from Danielle Ackley-McPhail, one of the editors of the Bad-Ass Faeries series. Although it’s a “for the love” project, it sounds like it could be more if it generates sufficient interest. Either way, it could be fun to see what people present about different types of fae from around the world.

Call for Submissions
Venue: The Bad-Ass Faeries Blog and Website
Pay: by-line only* (this is a joint promotional effort and not for profit in any regard)
Deadline: None
Word Count: 1000 to 3000 words (word limit strictly enforced)

The BAFB&W is looking for short articles about various Bad-Ass Faeries in world mythology. We are not looking for quiet, unprepossessing faeries, but those with attitude. Mischievous, Malevolent, Warlike. They don’t have to be bad, but they have to be Bad-Ass. Articles should focus on specific types of faeries from existing myth and legend. It can be a profile of a specific type of faerie from one ethnic tradition, or a comparison of similar types of faeries across cultures, such as contrasting Loki with Coyote and other tricksters. Please provide confirmable sources of a reputable nature. Usage in games and fiction can be mentioned–are, in fact, desired–but should not be the primary source unless that is the specific focus of the article. Articles should be entertaining, enjoyable and well-written, but not dry and scholarly. Think of this as faeries for the everyman.

Articles will appear first on the blog, with the author being notified when it has posted, and then will be compiled into a faerie glossary resident on the Bad-Ass Faeries website.

Submissions can be sent to greenfirephoenix[at]aol[dot]com (replace the at and dot with the appropriate characters). Queries encouraged to minimize overlap of specific faeries.

*If sufficient interest and material is received we will consider pursuing publication, in which case, terms will be negotiated with all of those participating.
