View Full Version : Reinventing the Trope Submission Call

07-25-2012, 08:29 PM
Looking for awesome new stories and poems to fit the theme of our very first issue of "Reinventing the Trope."

Visit our website www.wickedsquare.com for more information, including how to submit.

Issue One Theme: No Country for Old Mentors.
Move over Gandalf, it’s time for a new mentor. Everyone’s seen in it countless fantasy settings: the wizened old man/wizard/hermit who guides the young hero to his destiny. We’ve also seen plenty of apocalyptic movies where everyone goes to the old hobo for advice. No more Belgaraths, Zeddicus Zul Zoranders or Dallbens. We’re looking for some fresh stories and poems that take the old man mentor trope and flip it upside down either by following the theme of mentorship or using the old man mentor and subverting his character. Either way, help us in our first issue inject some new life in this trope that’s as old as the men involved.

Submissions are for the Fall 2012 issue and the premiere issue of Wicked Square Publishing. Deadline for submissions is October 17th and the issue should be coming out in November.
