I’ve been thinking about this for a long time and I’ve finally decided to start a new literary magazine devoted to the life and works of William Hope Hodgson! I believe that I am in a unique position to create a magazine worthy of WHH and, hopefully, not only bring new scholarship on WHH to the public but encourage even more to be created! The name of the magazine shall be…
This will be a high quality printed magazine with perfect binding and glossy covers. As of this moment, I am opening the magazine up for submissions for the first issue. I am looking for well-written, thoughtful articles about WHH’s works and his life as well. Articles should be between 3,000-3,500 words. I am also looking for great artwork for the cover as well as some interior illustrations. Payment will be in contributor’s copies with all rights reserved by the contributor’s.
The first issue will be published in November, 2013. November was, of course, the month of Hodgson’s birth (and mine as well!) so it certainly seems appropriate. The deadline for submissions for the first issue is March 31, 2013. If you have any questions about the magazine or submissions, please feel free to contact me via my email at firstname.lastname@example.org and please put “Sargasso” in the subject line.
I hope that everyone will support SARGASSO and help it become the magazine that Hodgson has long deserved!
