Tears of the Phoenix's next project will be an anthology to raise money for Darien Book Aid, a literary charity that supplies books to Peace Corp volunteers who need them to teach literacy.

We are accepting art, photography, illustrations, fiction and poetry. We have collected prompts from volunteers at Darien Book Aid and they can be found here. These are for inspiration only and do not HAVE to be used.

Deadline for this project:

Stories, poetry and drabbles: June 1st
Art and Illustrations: July 1st

We also are taking submissions for our new literary magazine "INK." We accept art, photography, illustrations, comics, poetry, fiction, non-fictiion and memoir. Our first edition's theme is "Beginnings and Endings." We don't have a deadline for this project yet, but  we'd love to have an edition out before the end of the year, so please consider us if you have anything that fits.

Lastly, we had so much fun working with Harry Potter fans that we are again putting out a niche anthology, this time with Wizard Rock 
musicians supplying the prompts (they are wacky, let me tell ya!) and asking fans to write and contribute art. Those prompts can be found here.

Deadline for this project:
Fiction and Poetry--November 1st
Art--December 1st

ARTISTS INTERESTED IN ILLUSTRATING

If you would like to be put on a list of illustrators (to illustrate stories and poems themselves, instead of working independently of a story) please contact our art department by emailing kim(at)tearsofthephoenixink.org or diana(at)tearsofthephoenixink.org and they will put you on the list and contact you when stories come in that need illustrations.

PLEASE HELP US SPREAD THE WORD!! WE WANT AS MANY TALENTED ARTISTS, POETS AND WRITERS AS WE CAN!!

I had my students write HP fanfic for class over the break. Hopefully some of them have caught the writing bug, in which case, when I send them to TotP, you'll have some new submissions!

TJ, I *heart* you to death, but the possessives without apostrophes are killin' me Smalls!
