The SWG's May 2017 Newsletter has been posted!

This month we invite you to participate in a survey regarding the new LiveJournal Terms of service, that directly impact our SWG community on their site. We tempt you once more with latest challenge "A Woman’s Sceptre" and welcome our April new joiners.

Our character biography for this month is (First Age) Barahir, by Oshun. In many ways embodies he the unrelenting and inescapable tragedy that plagues The Silmarillion. But through his son Beren and a legacy that passes through to the Third Age, Barahir also fits into Tolkien's essential concept of eucatastrophe.

Keen to read something new? Our newsletter lists all the stories, essays, and poems added or updated on our SWG archive during the past month of April. To keep up to date with the wider fandom world, our Around the World and Web section includes recent articles of interest, fandom events, and calls for papers.

As always, many hands and minds go into making our newsletter possible. Thanks this month go to Oshun, Elleth, Angelica, and Dawn for creating and compiling our newsletter content.
