The Mauve Issue

We have announced the winners of this year’s contest. The most resounding congratulations to Courtney Bird and Lindsay Lusby.

We continue with our Fairy-Tale Files blog feature with the story of “Briar Rose” and its many re-imaginings over the years from poets (Anne Sexton) and folk singer-songwriters (Aoife O’Donovan).

We are happy to announce that Joy Williams’ The Changeling will soon be back in stock is in stock at SPD books, after completing of the eighth print run of the 1978 novel, which Fairy Tale Review Press reissued in 2008.

General submissions of prose and poetry to The Ochre Issue are now closed, as are submissions to our second annual awards for poetry and prose. The winners of the contests will be announced by the end of September—Brian Evenson will judge prose and Joyelle McSweeney will judge poetry.
