Deadline: Feb. 24, 2011, May 14, 2011, June 30, 2011, and September 30, 2011
Guidelines: Enchanted Conversation: A Fairy Tale Magazine
Payment: Fiction and nonfiction: $0.10 per word, Poetry: $50 flat rate
Fairy tales aren’t just for children anymore. This magazine takes fairy tales to new realms of wonder and enchantment.
The deadlines above are for different issues. The February issue is with a Rumpelstilstkin theme. Check the website for the themes of each subsequent issue. Read the guidelines carefully, because the open window for submissions is usually just a few days long.
You may write a story up to 1,500 words following the issue’s theme, or submit original poetry. Fairy tales are all about the romance of true love and dreams coming true. Unless they’re of the darker kind, such as where witches eat children or mermaids turn into sea foam.
If you love fairy tales and you love creating new enchanted stories or poems, check out this site. The artwork is phenomenal.
I’m a fairy tale lover, and have a new story East of the Sun and West of the Moon Redux coming out in the July 2011 issue of Pink Narcissus Press. If you get published in A Fairy Tale Magazine, share your good news here. I’ll tweet it for you.
Have fun writing your new fairy tale!
