About

Since 2007, Kate Wolford has offered fairy tale lovers a space to publish their own tales, read the classics again, and enjoy classic fairy tale art through Enchanted Conversation (now known as The Fairy Tale Magazine.) This is a site for fairy tale lovers, creators, and dreamers. If you love entering the imaginative world of Charles Perrault, The Brothers Grimm, and Hans Christian Andersen, this is your place. If you love reimagining classic fairy tales and putting the results into stories, this is your place. If you want to write and read all-new fairy tales, this is your place. If you want reader-friendly analysis of fairy tales, this is your place. If you love Golden Age of Illustration art, this is your place. Enchanted Conversation was started soon after Kate began teaching the analysis of fairy tale to college students—and initially it was a site called Diamonds and Toads. Though it was supposed to be a site for students, she ran a writing contest one summer and out of that, EC was born.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
