SEASON RANGE SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

 

TDWP: NEW ADVENTURES

The Doctor Who Project [TDWP] is accepting story proposals for the very first story that will be published as part of our New Adventures range of short stories.

TDWP: New Adventures centers on the continuing adventures of an alternate Tenth Doctor and his current travelling companion Hannah Redfoot.

  • Stories are published tri-annually (three times per year).
  • Our stories have generally been between 12,000–45,000 words 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 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 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 a MS Word document attached to the body of an email.

Deadline for submitting proposals is:      November 15 2017

Submissions to:     thedoctorwhoproject@shaw.ca

The full Submission Guidelines are available by clicking TDWP New Adventures Guidelines.

PLEASE NOTE: We are currently only seeking submissions for the very first New Adventures story. We will be putting out calls for further stories in the range later this year/in early 2018.
