DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 16, 2020

In fantasy, dragons are more common than trees—even crossing lines into other genres—and yet, they fall short of obligatory. As dragons grow in popularity, they’re falling in the dangerous zone between staple and soulless stereotype.

Therefore, Mythulu’s October 2020 issue will be entirely dedicated to challenging use of dragons in literature. Please confront the following question:

"What do dragons contribute to a story? Is there a way to accomplish the same thing without using dragons at all?"

CURRENTLY SEEKING

Short Stories

WITHOUT DRAGONS. Use other storytelling and worldbuilding mechanics to fulfill the story needs usually filled by dragons. All genres welcome.

Cartoons

Any size from single panel up to two-pages of spread. Our magazine is produced in standard letter size (8.5 x 11" with 1" margin). Cartoons and graphic shorts pay at twice the normal per-page rate.

Non-Fiction Articles

Insightful discussion of the theme, extraordinary storycraft, or business topics for artistic entreprenuers.

Art

For this issue, we are especially interested in monsters that have one dragon-like quality and are otherwise unique. If your drawing was inspired by Mythulu Cards, let us know.

Advertisements

$80 for a full page. Subject to approval. We only publish ads that we believe are in the best interest of our audience, and we limit ads to 4 slots/issue.

Letters to the Editor

CURRENT EVENTS TOPIC: Because of Covid, all conventions are currently online-only. Normally, in-person encounters build deep, personal relationships between authors and fans. What ideas do you have for making online-conventions an opportunity instead of a barrier?
