About

We believe it is important for readers to see themselves reflected on the page. After truly realizing how few characters in classic fairytales are People of Color, we wanted to make an anthology of fairytales where readers of color could see themselves on the pages. We are seeking retellings and rewritings of classic fairytales that FEATURE People of Color or different ethnic or cultural backgrounds (non-white) as the characters and that are WRITTEN by People of Color or different ethnic or cultural backgrounds (non-white). The original source material should be recognizable but not copied; we will reward creativity and uniqueness in the retelling and rewriting. We are looking for heart, the human condition, truth, diversity, overarching metaphors and allegories, deeper meanings and morals. We are not seeking work aimed at children. Please note that we are looking for retellings of classic fairytales that are in the public domain; obscure characters and stories are fine and encouraged, but we are not seeking original fairytales that have not previously existed in a different form.

Important: Limited Demographic: Submissions are restricted to people of color or different ethnic or cultural backgrounds.
