Fairy Tale Review is now accepting entries for the Emerald Issue, featuring work inspired by The Wonderful Wizard of Oz!
The tenth anniversary issue of Fairy Tale Review, now housed at Wayne
State University Press but still edited by founder Kate Bernheimer, is
open to submissions for The Emerald Issue. Contributors to past issues
of Fairy Tale Review include Aimee Bender, Lydia Millet, Donna Tartt,
Jack Zipes, and many others. Work from Fairy Tale Review has been
selected for inclusion in the O. Henry Prize Stories anthology, Best New
American Voices, Best American Fantasy, and listed as "Notable" in Best
American Short Stories.
Poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, drama, scholarship, research,
artwork that imaginatively explores Oz ephemera; from creative
re-tellings/revisions of the Oz tales (whether the literary series or the
classic film, which will celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2014) to
work inspired/influenced by all the many things that make up the
Wizard's Oz and Dorothy's Kansas. We have a particular interest in a
green interpretation: work that references the environment and the role
of nature (from cyclones to gemstones). In keeping with Fairy Tale
Review's open aesthetic, your work may be in any style and form, and the
path it takes down that famed Emerald Road may be literal or enigmatic.
Translations welcome. The Emerald Issue will be co-edited by Kate
Bernheimer, Founder and Editor of Fairy Tale Review, and Timothy
Schaffert, who Guest Edited 2011's The Brown Issue, from which work was
selected for the O. Henry Prize Stories anthology.
Submission period: March 1, 2013--August 1, 2013
All submissions will be responded to by September 1, 2013. The Emerald Issue will appear in 2014.
