CFP: Honoring Ursula K. Le Guin: Citizen of Mondrath
We’re glad to share the call for papers for the upcoming special issue of Mythlore journal (Spring 2021) “Honoring Ursula K. Le Guin: Citizen of Mondrath”.
The journal invites article submissions for a special issue focused on Ursula K. Le Guin, grandmaster of mythopoeic fantasy. We welcome essays on the following topics: Le Guin’s Earthsea series, the three novels of the “Annals of the Western Shore,” namely Gifts, Voices, and Powers, the young adult novel The Beginning Place, and her fantasy short stories. The editors welcome as well articles on her critical essays that examine mythopoeic writing and any of her poetry or non-fantasy writing that has mythopoeic themes and imagery. We welcome articles that explore Le Guin’s influence on the fantasy genre as a whole and on other writers, as well as articles exploring how other writers influenced Le Guin.
The deadline to send full articles is December 20, 2020.
