CALLING ALL FANTASY WRITERS! SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION NEWSLETTER FOR FANTASYCON 2022!
Flame Tree Fiction are excited to announce that we will be printing an A5 fiction newsletter
with 7 fantasy flash fiction stories of 1,000 words as a special edition for FantasyCon 2022, 17th-18th September, which will be alongside our usual monthly newsletter.
The programme will include the chosen stories and the author’s bio, where it is read by
hundreds of writers in the UK Fantasy Community. It’s a fantastic, paid opportunity for
authors! Please note that the Monthly Fantasy Newsletter will run as usual.
The theme is…
7 DAYS OF FOLKLORE AND MODERN MYTH
The days of the week are steeped in mythology and folklore, often told around firesides in
times past. A man-made construct that we base our entire lives on. Originating from a
Sumerian calendar around 2000 BC, the seven days follow the transitions into the phases of
the moon: full, waning half, new and waxing half.
It is fitting then that the week therefore begins with Monday, the day of the moon, and ends
on the day of the sun: Sunday. Western Hemisphere mythology gave us Thursday, or Thor’s-
day. In Latin, Saturday was named after Saturn (Saturni). Each day of the week is connected
to a healing crystal. Christian stories tell of the seven days it took to create the universe.
Choose one, choose all – and take up your pen.
