Call For Stories released!

As part of the Christ & Tolkien Conference, a Call For Stories has been released. Approved submissions will be published in an edited anthology, be mentioned publicly at the conference, and also entitle the author to a free ticket to the conference!

Do you love the stories of J. R. R. Tolkien? Have you ever been inspired by them to write yourself?

Epic fantasy author and Russian Orthodox deacon Nicholas Kotar is editing a volume of original short fantasy stories inspired by J. R. R. Tolkien’s writing and the power of his work to envision Paradise.

In conjunction with the Christ and Tolkien Conference in Fall 2021, we are looking for submissions of stories that engage and grapple with imaginatively presenting a vision of paradise in a fallen world.

As a participant of the 2019 Ancient Faith Writing and Podcasting Conference said, there are few compelling visions of Paradise in the imaginative literature of the west outside of a few inklings in Tolkien and C. S. Lewis. Now is your chance to do just that—write a story, inspired by Tolkien’s vision of the world to come, and even have it presented officially at the Christ and Tolkien conference in 2021!
