On the Wine Dark Sea is a fan fiction zine. Participants write in character as a passenger of the Jiu Hai Shen under the authority of Captain Nyorissa Kel. Each month you will be given a writing prompt and asked to supply us with 200-500 words in response to the situation at hand. You own your story and only yours. The prompts themselves belong to Ana Maria Selvaggio/Renmeleon (Captain Kel) and all that is asked is that you not repost or publish your submission without posting the link to the whole zine. The zine will be posted online in PDF format for download for free. Anything Firefly or Serenity referenced belongs to the respective copyright owners. This is a work of fan fiction and not to be reproduced in whole or in part.

Prompt links will be live from the 7th until midnight EST on the 20th. After that, whatever is submitted will be pasted into a template and prettied up before posting below on the 1st of the following month before the next prompt is posted on the 7th. Participant emails are collected, never sold, and you will receive a copy of your submission as well as be notified when it goes live.

Open to all Firefly/Serenity fans, not just Kentucky-based, so spread the word cross the ‘verse. Please keep it PG-13 (in as much as the show was). We do have crew members who are minors.

Thank you for contributing, looking forward to reading it!
