Open for Submissions
Submissions are now being accepted for our eleventh annual issue, The Mauve Issue, of Fairy Tale Review. The Mauve Issue will be published in 2015 and has no particular theme. Simply send your best fairy-tale work along the spectrum of mainstream to experimental, fabulist to realist. The reading period will remain open until the issue is full – we predict closing it sometime in late spring or early summer.
We accept fiction, nonfiction, drama, and poetry, in English or in translation to English, along with scholarly, hybrid, and illustrated works (comics, black-line drawings, etc.). We will consider original interview transcripts and dialogues. You may submit up to 30 pages for our consideration, though in rare cases we will consider longer works; space is limited as we are an annual journal. We can consider only previously unpublished material. Please send Word, .doc, .docx, or .pdf files. Artwork must be in high-resolution (300 dpi or higher) to be considered. In cases of translation to English, please provide proof of permission to translate and/or indicate public domain material. If your work includes illustrations that are not by you, please provide proof of permission to use the illustrations from the copyright holder, if relevant.
Contributions to Fairy Tale Review have been selected for inclusion in the O. Henry Prize Stories Anthology, Best American Fantasy, Best New American Voices, and for notable listing in Best American Short Stories, among other honors. Our esteemed list of contributors over the past decade includes Donna Tartt, Aimee Bender, Joyelle McSweeney, Joshua Beckman, Don Mee Choi, Lydia Millet, Jack Zipes, Kim Hyesoon, Marina Warner, Zachary Mason, and many others. Fairy Tale Review is now hosted on JStor, and is published and distributed by Wayne State University press. All submissions will be read by the editorial staff housed in the MFA Program at the University of Arizona along with Kate Bernheimer, founder and editor of Fairy Tale Review, and scholars and practitioners around the country.
