Announcing Season 41/A Call To Writers

November 7, 2015

ATTENTION ALL WRITERS!

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU.

The Doctor Who Project [TDWP] is accepting story proposals for consideration as part of a forthcoming season of short stories.

TDWP centers on the continuing adventures of an alternate Tenth Doctor and his current travelling companion Hannah Redfoot. Stories are published as part of an overall season that concentrates on delivering a collection of short stories that sees the Doctor facing new and original situations in time and space.

Our stories have typically been in the 12,000–45,000 word range and have featured elements from the original 1963-89 television series as well as original creations developed by our writers. Our stories are published as free downloadable PDF documents featuring a novel-like layout and specially created covers (designed by some of fandom’s most talented artists).

We’re doing a quasi-reboot of the series after a short break. Season 41 will feature 6 stories plus a Christmas Special. We are looking for imaginative, original and entertaining stories that see the Doctor and his companion travel and experience the wonders of the universe.

To contribute** a story proposal to TDWP all you have to do is:

  1. Submit 4-6 paragraphs outlining the basic plot of your story and the characters featured,
  2. provide your full name and email, and
  3. include a brief bio telling us a bit about yourself

**If this is your first time submitting a proposal to TDWP, please also include 2-3 samples of your writing.

You don’t have to know a thing about TDWP, its history, or have read any or all of its past stories. It doesn’t matter. Ignore it all.

We’re merely looking for seven well written Doctor Who adventures. Besides, a good story is a good story and as long as you include our Tenth Doctor and companion Hannah in the story proposal, you’re good to go. It’s that simple. (Oh and don’t worry, we’ll make detailed biographies available to you on both characters, as well as photographic reference material to give you an idea what the characters look like.)

Story proposals and all requested material should be submitted as either a MS Word or PDF document attached to the body of an email.

  • Deadline for submitting proposals is: December 5, 2015
  • Submissions to: thedoctorwhoproject@shaw.ca

To obtain a copy of the Submission Guidelines please email us at the above email address and in return we will send you a copy of the guidelines.

If you have any questions, or would like further information please feel free to email us at the above email address and we’ll reply at our earliest opportunity.

We look forward to hearing from you.
