Inside A Song

With so much amazing fanfic available for free on the web, do we even need a print zine? I can't answer this for anyone else, but my personal feeling is... Yes, Frodo and Sam, lovers of books and writing themselves, deserve to be celebrated in that medium as well. (Besides, can there ever be enough of a good thing?)

Inside A Song is due to be published in May 2003: a collection of stories, poetry and artwork devoted to the complex and amazing relationship between Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee in all its facets. The zine is open to materials of any genre, rating, length and focus, so long as Sam and Frodo are at the center. Slash in its many shadings will be very welcome but is not a submission requirement either: any work exploring the unique bond between the two hobbits can find its home in this zine.

Deadline for story contributions: Jan. 1, 2003.
Deadline for art submissions: March 1, 2003.
Both stories and art can be submitted via email (please contact me for details about file formats). Contributors will receive a free copy of the zine. At the same time, stories that are included in this zine should not be posted or archived on the web until a year after the zine's publication.

Submitted stories are subject to editing, though of course no changes will be made without the author's consent. Please don't hesitate to submit your work. If you have any questions, please email me.
I look forward to hearing from you all.
