The Call of Poohthulhu

This publication will be an anthology of original Lovecraftian stories based loosely on the original Winnie the Pooh book by A.A. Milne. 

We are looking for stories that take the original concepts and characters of the beloved children's' book, and imbue them with cosmic horror  - feel free to let loose. We are not aiming to make another children's book here. 

Suggested references are the original book and the Tao of Pooh - the original stories are stuffed full with existential contemplation, ripe for plucking and applying to the larger universe of the Mythos. These stories do not have to interconnect, but they must reflect the settings and characters that A.A. Milne created.

To Submit

1. Please send an outline of your idea to aprilmoonbooks@gmail.com  - the subject line should read pooh-(title)-(your name) - .doc files only! Please specify the character you are focusing on.

2. Compensation for this project will be a flat rate of $100 CAN, paid via Paypal. We can afford to pay for 10 stories, and possibly find more for some cover art, so for this reason we cannot accept stories that are too short - aim for 4,000 words minimum. 

3. There can be NO reference to Disney's version of Winnie the Pooh, in any form.

4. Once you have been approved, you will have until the end of March 2022 to submit the completed story for editing. We will be in touch regarding this procedure and to also furnish contracts. 

5. For detailed submission guidelines, please see this page.

Thank you - have fun!
