A community devoted to all things folklore and mythology related. A place to post and discuss inspirations in the form of essays, art work, poetry, links to e-texts and interesting articles or websites, reviews and short stories. See "interests list" below for examples of relevant subjects/themes/sources for discussion, the spectrum is broad. Of course anything not in the list but still relevant to mythology, folk tales, art, folklore & customs will be accepted. Also, we would like to hear of any modern movie/literary/artistic adaptations that are inspired by folklore in some way, and reviews of books/folk music/exhibitions etc are also relevant.
Original writing/art inspired by folklore will also be accepted, but as this community is still new, the Moderator will keep an eye out for such work to see how popular this activity is (as well as the quality of the work posted - i.e. that it is properly edited and posted behind a lj-cut). Eventually rules may be in place for posting original material if this should prove a popular activity.
Please post ALL original submissions/lengthy entries/images behind an lj-cut.
A collection of all our treasured links & useful sources can be found here.
Enjoy, and be inspired!
