Call for Submissions: The Pink Issue

Calls for Submissions

We’re pleased to announce our fifteenth issue, The Pink Issue, which will be published in early 2019.

The theme of The Pink Issue is, as always, fairy tales.

Fairy Tale Review‘s founding editor, Kate Bernheimer, is also returning to a more active editorial role beginning with The Pink Issue. We’re excited to see how her vision and fairy-tale expertise shapes this important issue.

Reading period: March 7, 2018 to May 31, 2018

Beginning on March 7, submissions can be made online via Submittable. See Submittable for more specific instructions on how to submit, and guidelines for each genre.

Thank you to all our readers and would-be contributors as we tinkered and problem-solved through these last few months. We’re grateful for your patience and understanding that running an all-volunteer literary magazine is never easy. We’ve never been more inspired and determined to discover the finest fairy-tale artists of our time and share their work.
