Calling all Otherkin and Otherkin-friendly artists and writers! The Green Wolf (http://www.thegreenwolf.com
) would like to announce the conception of an as-of-yet-untitled new magazine designed and written by and for Otherkin. It will be a 52-page periodical that will be published quarterly; the first issue is scheduled for Beltane (May 1), 2006. The first issue will come by way of Cafe Press, but once we have a bit of capital built up we're going to go through an actual printer and offer subscriptions, hopefully with the second issue should the first sell well.
We're looking for articles on all topics concerning Otherkin; this can include any/all of the following, and then some:
* Origins of Otherkin (reincarnation, personal mythology, etc.)
* The History of the Otherkin Community
* Articles specific to certain flavors of 'kin (elves, therians, dragons, vampires, etc.)
* Events in the Otherkin community, both local and regional
* Otherkin and Spirituality
* Otherkin and Magic
* What it's like to be Otherkin
* Got any other ideas?
We're also looking for quality black and white line art for interior illustrations, as well as front and back cover color or black/white illustrations. Tasteful nudity is fine, though we don't need an entire issue of skyclad female faeries (as much fun as that could be in and of itself!)
Originality and good writing/artistic skills are key; we'll be able to help some on the writing with editing, but the more effort on your part means the greater likelihood we'll accept your work.
Due to this being a startup, we will not be able to offer any compensation other than "Hey, guess what? You're in print!" Apologies to anyone writing solely for the money--we hope to change this someday once the magazine's paying for itself.
Deadlines for the Beltane issue are March 1. Please send articles in Word format and images in .jpg or .gif format to firstname.lastname@example.org . If you have any questions or would like to propose an idea before you actually follow through with it, feel free to drop us a line.
