Call for Submissions

A colleague of mine within the Northern Tradition is working on a new project. If you have a devotional relationship with the duergar, or have had interactions with Them in the past, please consider submitting something.

Call for Submissions for:

“The Duergarbok: Working with the Dwarves of the Northern Tradition”

The Northern Tradition has many tales and legends about the Duergar, primarily known as the skilled craftsmen who created such magical objects as Thor’s famed hammer Mjölnir, Freyja’s necklace Brisingamen and the rope used for binding the mighty wolf Fenris. Keen businessmen with a profound sense of honor and oath-obligation, they command respect. Little is now known about their rich and ancient culture, a deficit we hope to address.

We’re looking for contributions to this anthology – essays about your experiences with the Duergar-spirits, about sacred crafting, about the ethics of engaging the Duergar for assistance in projects, as well as poems, prayers, rituals, etc. We are also interested in original art work, including black and white photographs of sacred crafts created with the guidance or assistance of the Duergar.

Please feel free to pass this CFS to anyone you think might be interested!

1. Email submissions to sravenswing@gmail.com by January 1, 2018.

2. Submissions must be no more than 8000 words in length.

3. Submissions should be made in English as a Word document, with text double spaced in a standard font such as Times New Roman or Cambria. No special formatting, please.

4. All submitted pieces must be the author or artist’s own work. Authors are responsible for obtaining the requisite permission to reprint copyrighted material, including images.

5. Submissions of illustrations and artwork should be sent as JPG, PNG or TIF files, 300 dpi at the actual print size (6×9 page). The name of the artist and title of the piece should be included in a Word file accompanying the image.

6. Contributors will be compensated with a .pdf file of the completed text.
