The 30th Anniversary of the Silmarillion Project

In the name of LadyElleth and Qitian I'm passing you project news:

Like the subject line says, a book we all love is nearing its 30th publication anniversary - 09/15/1977 marks the day the Silmarillion was first published, and now, 30 years later, we need your help to celebrate!

"I would draw some of the great tales in fullness, and leave many only placed in the scheme, and sketched. The cycles should be linked to a majestic whole, and yet leave scope for other minds and hands, wielding paint and music and drama. Absurd."
~J.R.R.Tolkien in a letter to Milton Waldman, (probably) in late 1951

It's not all that absurd, is it? The fans, here on DA and elsewhere, have made that abundantly clear - and the brilliant Qitian had the fabulous idea to gather all contributions to this very special day in one place. For the rest of the month (starting on the 15th), feel free to share all paint, music, drama, and other Silmarillion-related material in the Silmarillion Anniversary Celebration community community.livejournal.com/30ye… on LiveJournal. Your material doesn't have to be new either - whatever you want to post, please do so! Don't have an LJ account, don't want to join just for the project, but want to contribute nonetheless? No problem, just send a mail with your material to 30yearssilm(at)googlemail(dot).com, note me or reply to this post, and we'll see it done!

Thanks for reading, please participate, and please spread the news - the more the merrier, isn't it?


Remember - you need to note Lady Elleth not me and answer to her journal entry not here.
