Fairy Tale Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

We are currently closed to all submissions as we restructure and re-envision our future.


We ask that all writers who would like to submit to Fairy Tale Review adhere to these guidelines.

  • All work must be previously unpublished (translations exempt; see the category for other rules).
  • Simultaneous submissions are welcome; please note as such in your cover letter, and withdraw the submission immediately if accepted elsewhere. Withdrawals should be done through Submittable. If you submitted a packet of poems and must withdraw only one but would like the rest to remain under consideration, make a note on Submittable and send us an email at ftreditorial@gmail.com.
  • Only one submission per genre during any reading period (except contests, with multiple contest fees). For example: You may submit one piece of prose and one packet of poems, but not two pieces of prose, within a single reading period. Additional submissions will be returned unread.
  • If you were published in the most recent print issue, please wait one year after publication of the issue to submit again; you are still welcome to submit to our contest or to the digital platform.

We hope to respond to submissions within 3 months, except for contest submissions, which take longer due to contest judging.
