Oloris Does NaNo, giveaways and more! 

Oloris Publishing has hit 700 likes on their Facebook page, which could never have happened without all the support and love from our loyal fans.  We ran a contest to get our name out there and offered ebook editions of all 5 issues of Silver Leaves as a prize. Shana Sullivan won the day, but we’re pretty sure that Oloris is the big winner here! And to show how much we love and appreciate you all, we’re already discussing future contests to reward your loyalty!

If you’re a NaNoWriMo participant and you missed our announcement, this one is for you. Whatever the length of your entry, you can submit your original work to Oloris from January 1 to March 1, 2015 for consideration to be included in our first NaNo anthology. Read more here and a second announcement will be coming soon.

Call for submissions! Silver Leaves: Music in Middle-earth

After a year long hiatus, Silver Leaves is back!  We’re still open for submissions for our sixth issue, due out next year.

The theme of this issue will be Music in Middle-earth. Silver Leaves welcomes artwork submissions, and all academic, journalistic, reflective, and creative submissions pertaining to music in Middle-earth and fantasy music in general. There is also limited room for creative and non-fiction submissions relating to Tolkien’s works, or to other fantasy works, which may fall outside of the theme of Issue #6. Publication is set for September 22, 2015 in both print and electronic formats. The deadline for all submissions is May 15, 2015. Written and artistic submissions should be sent to SilverLeavesJournal@gmail.com.

Silver Leaves is now accepting musical compositions, both instrumental and vocal in audio format. We would also love spoken pieces that are in keeping with the issue’s theme. You may submit standalone scores, or accompaniments to your written pieces. Please note that laws on copyright also apply for audio submissions. By submitting, you are confirming that you own the rights to the piece, or if not, you have written permission, that you can provide to us upon request, from the original artist. Accepted audio submissions will be uploaded and streamed via SoundCloud. You can view our submission guidelines here.
