We are currently open to digital submissions. Please see the prose and poetry categories for specific guidelines and instructions based on genre.

Our general guidelines, which apply to all submissions, are below.

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

  • All work must be previously unpublished.
  • 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, send us an email at ftreditorial@gmail.com.
  • Send only one piece at a time, and wait until you've received a response before sending another.

We hope to respond to submissions within 3 months.

This category is for submissions to our digital platform. Accepted work will be published on our website on a weekly basis.

Please submit up to 5,000 words of a single prose piece for our consideration, or up to three flash pieces of prose each under 1,000 words. 

Manuscripts should be double-spaced, paginated, and in 12 pt. font unless the form of the piece dictates otherwise.

We consider fiction, nonfiction, and drama along with scholarly, illustrated, and hybrid works. If your piece is a prose/poetry hybrid, please submit to your preferred category—we like to let authors make that determination.
