Did you know that the Sindarin word "teitho" deasn't mean only "write", but "draw" as well? That's right, and Teitho is entering a new phase, which we would like to proudly announce. It is a phase of collaboration between writers and artists, where we would like to see both stories and pictures as a response to our challenges.

Stories will be submitted per email, as usual, but the pictures should be submitted to Arda-Inspired, a group at deviantArt collaborating with Teitho. You need to have an account deviantArt to submit to it, but it is a site better equipped for posting art and safer against art theft. If you have any questions about joining or submitting, just send us an email to the adress below. The art entries do not have to feature Aragorn and/or Legolas, like the written entries do (because it might be a bit boring to draw only them every month). The links to the entries will be posted at the Teitho site together with the stories, and just like with the stories, you will be able to vote for the best 3 per our email.

To celebrate this new phase of Teitho, the theme for March is Stories and Pictures. Now you can write a story about a picture, or paint a picture about a story, if you wish so...

Books, archives, tales and their telling or writing, that are all possibilites if you decide to go for the first part of the challenge. The story can be a bedtime story for children, a historical account, or one of the famous elven lays, and it is just up to you who reads or writes it - maybe Aragorn or Legolas wrote stories or poems as well? You can draw or write about the archives of Minas Tirith, Aragorn reading a story from the extensive library of Rivendell, Frodo or Bilbo writing down their adventures...

The second part of the challenge offers you a look at art in Middle-earth: from Vaire's tapestries to childrens' drawings. Even tattoos and body painting belongs to this cathegory, so you could consider even Saruman's orcs artists... Paintings and tapestries are also unthinkable decorations of every palace, and some decorations can be found in every house and dwelling besides the poorest ones. We would like to see a story or picture about their making, or where pictures play an imortant role.

You only need to answer one part of the challenge, althought you can include both in your entry. The deadline of this theme is March 31st.

For writers: send your stories to teitho.contest@gmail.com. As usually, the contest is anonymous and the story can't be published publicaly until the results of the challenge are posted.

For artists: Submit your picture into the Teitho gallery folder of Arda-Inspired The picture should be new, drawn specifically for the challenge. State that you are submitting it to the contest in the artist's comments.

Here are the stories from this month:

A Letter to Pippin by Itarille 3rd place
A Surprising Gift by Rebecca Wilkin
Chance Meeting by Darkover 1st place
I paint your face in my mind by Mirach
Of fosterlings and fosterers by Archeress of Silverbow
Shelter from the Storm by Linda Hoyland 2nd place

Sadly, there are no pictures for this topic. Remember, though, that you can enter this contest not only story but also with a picture from now on!

Happy reading!

Your Teitho-moderators,
nautika, StarLight, and Mirach
