‘Heaven and Hell Across History and Religions’ By Wade Fransson


The concept of heaven and hell has been a central idea throughout the history of human thought and culture. From ancient civilizations to modern religions, people have explored the nature of the afterlife and the potential consequences of their actions during their lifetime. We encourage writers to draw from a wide range of sources and authors, including religious texts such as the Bible and the Quran, philosophical treatises like Plato’s Republic, and modern works like Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman series or Mitch Albom’s The Five People You Meet in Heaven. We’re looking for diverse perspectives on this fundamental human theme, so we welcome submissions that draw from different cultures and religions. Our goal is to create an anthology that provides readers with a rich and nuanced exploration of the concept of heaven and hell throughout human history. We hope to receive a broad range of submissions that will allow us to achieve this goal.

Length of Stories:

For this anthology, we invite writers to submit 3,000 to 5,000 word stories and essays that explore the theme of heaven and hell across history and religions. We welcome both fiction and nonfiction pieces that delve into the human experience of the afterlife, its meaning, and its impact on our daily lives. One reference to inspire writers is Dante’s Inferno, the first part of his epic poem The Divine Comedy, in which the author journeys through Hell and experiences the punishments inflicted upon sinners. Dante’s work is a classic example of how the theme of the afterlife has been explored throughout the ages.
