Each chapter will be an essay by a different author on what they've learned through inspiration to write fiction, through applying the universal truths of their lives to fiction, and other gnosis learned through the process of writing. Wherever this wisdom comes from, it all qualifies as long as it occurred in the author's mind due to writing fiction.

To submit:

Send your essay, a cover letter including a brief description of the process by which you received your wisdom (inductive reasoning realization while examining life in another context, automatic writing, the muse, inspiration, dreams, the voices in your head, ahem entheogens & that music grandpa hates, etc.) and the general topic of your insights (humanity, gods, animal intelligence, fairies as ancient aliens, lessons about living derived from chaos math, etc.) and a short author bio to:

Hmm. Sounds interesting Erin. I'm bogged down in finishing three shorts for anthology calls and the third draft on my new novel at present, but I will bear this in mind and submit something if I get a chance.

Sounds very interesting. I'll have to think on it, but it does sound good.

What if the fiction is in the form of text based role playing? I've had some serious perception altering experiences and epiphany upon epiphany regarding the nature of consciousness, life and evolution from the silly pastime of RP
