Tales From The Forest – A Bunch of Issues

Calls For Submissions

Tales From The Forest is a quarterly online magazine. A new issue is available every 3 months, and usually a new theme is announced with the same frequency.

HOWEVER, issues #6, #7 and #8 will be handled differently. They will be available 3 months apart, but the themes will be announced now.
This is to allow artists and writers a unique opportunity – to serialize their work into a triptych form across 3 individual issues. We accept and encourage individual submissions to each issue. That said, if you feel like making art that tells a continuous story or writing a story that massively exceeds our usual wordcount, now is the time.

Tales From The Forest: Issue #5

*
Tales From The Forest are happy to announce the theme of our next issue will be “Those Things We’re Not.” Deadline April 2nd.
*
New Year has just gone flying past, and it’s maybe time to review those resolutions of ours. What’s realistic? What’s unheard of? What are we? What are we not? More importantly, Donald Trump has just become president of America, and that’s the world we live in now. It may be time for a reminder on What We Are Not, and What We Will Not Be Told, and What We Will Not Tell People. We’re hoping this will be a positive issue, or at least an enlightening one.

That sounded a little lofty. You can also submit cartoons and limericks if you like.
